School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up Books of musical games and activities for youngsters abound, but Nelson's selection is somewhat unique. It deals exclusively with rounds and presents this form in depth through a variety of selections, from the familiar to the esoteric, from ethnic folk songs to familiar foreign language jingles, from sentimental to silly songs. Some rounds can be found in other anthologies such as Winn's The Fireside Book of Fun & Game Songs (S. & S., 1974) and in Beatrice Landeck's More Songs to Grow On (Morrow, 1954; o.p.). John Langstaff's Sweetly Sings the Donkey (Atheneum, 1976) is devoted entirely to rounds, but its brevity does not permit as broad a presentation as is found in this one. For libraries in which a demand exists for this specialized material, the selection would be a useful addition. Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School Media Center, Montvale, N.J.
