“A collection of over 100 traditional childhood hand-clapping and street rhymes. Ball-bouncing rhymes, counting-out rhymes, and favorite teases, taunts, and comebacks include “Miss Mary Mack,” ” I Am a Pretty Little Dutch Girl,” and “A, My Name Is Alice.” Tiegreen’s lighthearted pen-and-ink illustrations are sure to tickle the fancy of young readers.
