"These 32 original rhymes are infused with fresh, colorful imagery and toe-tapping rhythm. Appropriate for reading or chanting aloud while jumping rope, each one has a lighthearted, whimsical quality. ... This pleasing book makes a supplement to Jane Yolen's Street Rhymes Around the World (Wordsong, 2003) and Joanna Cole's Anna Banana: 101 Jump-Rope Rhymes (HarperTrophy, 1989)."

"Dotlich not only reproduces the typical pace and sound of traditional jump-rope rhymes, but most of their common tropes, too. ... her nonsense also ably captures that timeless, folkloric quality that draws generations of rope-jumpers to the old chestnuts. ... This winning combination of infectious rhythms and easy-to-learn rhymes will have young audiences jumping at the chance to skip, or clap, along.
