Come out and Play

Overview

Can you come out and play?

If you woke up tomorrow in Egypt with a yen for a good game of tag, you could find it. Then you could hop on your magic carpet and fly to Thailand to play Go Fish with some new friends. Later, you could seesaw until the cows come home in Ireland. Everyone loves to play and the universal appeal of games and goofing around is joyfully evident in COME OUT AND PLAY.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Several picture books offer glimpses of diverse cultures. Each of the photos in Come Out and Play by Maya Ajmera and John Ivanko speaks volumes about what life is like in various countries. The sentence, "To play means swinging and jumping and running and climbing," covers two spreads and accompanies photos of a child gliding in what appears to be a metal bucket on a brightly colored swing set in Egypt, a child in button-down shirt and tie swinging on a rope in Nepal and children racing barefoot in Nicaragua with their village in the background. More exotic games (such as bao in Ethiopia or catch-the-wolf in Canada) are also featured. ( Feb.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
This wonderful picture book features brilliantly detailed photos that depict children from various ethnicities playing and having fun in different countries around the world. A phrase or two accompanies every photo in the book, telling how and where the child in the illustration is playing. For instance, the caption "Paddling a canoe in Guatemala" appears beside a photo of a child doing just that. The abundant, colorful photos throughout the book do a wonderful job of telling children that they are no different than other kids around the world. It helps the reader understand that it doesn't matter if you speak a different Language or have a different color skin; we all are alike in some way. This book is part of the "It's Kids World" series. 2001, Charlesbridge, Ages 4 to 8.
—Clark Thompson
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Colorful, vibrant photographs showcase children in more than 35 countries. The easy-to-read, boldfaced text tells about their leisure activities: "To play means swinging/and jumping/and running/and climbing." The simple sentences are enhanced by the clear action photographs that effectively illustrate the many forms a particular type of recreation can take. To some children, playing in the water may mean running through a lawn sprinkler; to others, it may mean floating in a stream or paddling a canoe. Picture captions identify the country and activity, affording a cultural panorama-"Leaping through flowers on a kibbutz in Israel"; "Playing bao in the yard in Ethiopia"; "Climbing a tree in the Philippines"; "Playing with a truck in Senegal." The photographs also provide glimpses into the world's different landscapes and environments. Kermit the Frog's foreword conveys the message that play is a universal language. Two pages of endnotes serve as a summary and encourage children to reflect on the many kinds of toys and the importance of imagination and friendship. A great discussion starter.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
