Jump Rope Review by Lisa Barthuly

Jump Rope is a neat little book about jumping rope and chalk games! This full-color paperback of over 60 pages is full of games and fun that promote exercise and smiles!

Jump Rope teaches over 20 games and gives a bit of history about where each game originated, instructions on how to play, a list of what you'll need to play the game, tips, and even songs you can sing while playing the games.

This is an adorable book, packed with enjoyable old-fashioned games that encourage us to get outside, play, use our imagination, get fresh air, and exercise! They also provide wonderful lessons in sharing, getting along, teamwork, and more.

I can't come up with any negatives here. This is all good wholesome fun!
