"Readers can hop, skip and jump their way through a trove of poems in Over in the Pink House ... each of which is rhythmically suited to the schoolyard. 'Jumping Spell,' for instance, opens the collection:

blade of grass,
jump inside,
a looking glass.

Tap of heel,
holly tree,
he will fall
in love with me.'"

"This delightful book brings back memories of many summer afternoons playing outside with a jump rope. Whether it was Double Dutch or individual, it was time for girls to play and sing and socialize. Rebecca Kai Dotlich remembers this special time in her childhood and has created this series of poems to highlight the fun and silly kinds of chants girls sing when they jump rope together."
