K-Gr 3-- 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. Completing this treasury is a bibliography of sources of more street games and an index of first lines. A book that's sure to produce smiles in any story hour or program. --Pamela K.
