Children have been jumping rope, hopping, throwing, catching, chasing and hiding for thousands of years. How a game is played may vary from country to country and generation to generation, but the pattern stays the same. Let's Play is a wonderful collection of more than 50 games and rhymes, complete with simple, clear instructions for playing. The illustrations are both silly and sophisticated, capturing the spirit of these childhood pastimes with a clever artistic touch. From Leapfrog to Marbles and Hopscotch to Sardines, there are lots of familiar games --- and plenty of new twists on old favorites. A great book for children of all ages!
