I had a little brother. His name was Tiny Tim. I put him in the bathtub To teach him how to swim. He drank all the water. He ate all the soap. He died last night With a bubble in his throat. Jump-rope rhymes, chanted to maintain the rhythm of the game, have other, equally entertaining uses: You can dispatch bothersome younger siblings instantly—and temporarily. You can learn the name of your boyfriend through the magic words "Ice cream soda, Delaware Punch, Tell me the initials of my honey-bunch." You can perform the series of tasks set forth in "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around" and find out who, really, is the most nimble. You can even, with impunity, "conk your teacher on the bean with a rotten tangerine. " This collection of over six hundred jump-rope rhymes, originally published in 1969, is an introduction into the world of children—their attitudes, their concerns, their humor. Like other children's folklore, the rhymes are both richly inventive and innocently derivative, ranging from on-the-spot improvisations to old standards like "Bluebells, cockleshells," with a generous sprinkling of borrowings from other play activities—nursery rhymes, counting-out rhymes, and taunts. Even adult attitudes of the time are appropriated, but expressed with the artless candor of the child: Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch Castro by the toe. If he hollers make him say "I surrender, U.S.A." Though aware that children's play serves social and psychological functions, folklorists had long neglected analytical study of children's lore because primary data was not available in organized form. Roger Abraham's Dictionary has provided such a bibliographical tool for one category of children's lore and a model for future compendia in other areas. The alphabetically arranged rhymes are accompanied by notes on sources, provenience, variants, and connection with other play activities.

This is a collection of jump-rope rhymes, jump-rope history and reflections on rope jumping in the life of a child. Shirley Ratisseau has been collection these rhymes for more than seventy years, but this I not the limit of her gathering, for has interviewed people older than herself who remember rhymes back to the 19th century. There is also a preface by Ms. Ratisseau in which she offers a brief history of rope jumping and a reminiscence of the place of jumping rope in her life and her children's lives and her memories of growing up in rural Texas. "Humans have been skipping, turning and jumping for so many centuries; it is quite probable that there is no way to know (absolutely) when it all began. Who knows that there were not a few children of early prehistoric hunters of dinosaurs or wooly mammoths twisting things together to make the first usable -or pliable - ropes with which to play. What is actually known, and recorded in history, is that the early Egyptians really did have jumping or skipping games. The Egyptians probably jumped over vines. It is also more than probable that the ancient Chinese, aborigines, and early Native Americans jumped over straight, thin limbs of trees as well as bamboo and the tall reed-like plants growing near fresh water or estuaries. There were, too, grape vines, and other sturdy vines available. Medieval painters depicted quite recognizable images of children jumping hoops. I have been told that there are a few cave dweller pictographs showing humans in jumping positions. "Come into the cave, children, and play your skipping games in here. There's a Brontosaurus out there!" Time moved forward, as it always does, and what we now consider jumping rope went from Europe to the Netherlands, and soon, was on its way to America. In the 1600s early Dutch settlers were possibly the first jumpers using real jump ropes on North American shores. Think about it. We had to have been taught "Double Dutch" jumping games by experts." Shirley Ratisseau, 2011

"Schoolyard rhymes are catchy and fun. They are easy to remember. In fact, they stick in the mind like bubble gum to a shoe." writes Judy Sierra in her introduction to this lively collection of traditional playground chants. Included are more than 50 verses ranging from the familiar jump rope rhyme about the mythical lady with the alligator purse to less familiar counting-out ones, from funny rhymes for ball-bouncing and hand-clapping games to "Liar, liar, pants on fire, nose as long as a telephone wire" and other choice insults of children. Melissa Sweet includes bright, colorful fabric swatches in her watercolor-and-pencil collages to perfectly capture the spirit of these funky, street-smart verses that children love to recite and chant.
