Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
From Aruba to India to the United States, this collection features instructions for enough variants of the game to let fans hop till they drop. Ages 7-up. (May)
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- In double-page spreads, 19 forms of hopscotch are clearly explained, first with a general description and then with step-by-step directions. Milone's watercolor illustrations show a small diagram of the game pattern and children playing in various countries. A world map identifying each of the locations and an introduction add to the attraction. Enjoyable and informative, the book has varied and creative uses, both for the games themselves and the multicultural studies into which they can be integrated. A unique and welcome addition to most collections. --Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL
