This book brought back lots of childhood memories of clapping games and camp songs. I was disappointed that it was mainly just the words and very few descriptions of the fingerplays or playground folklore/activities. The CDs in the back are of the songs that many children's CDs have ("The More We Get Together," "Alphabet Song," "Yankee Doodle," etc.) and not of the sing-songy chants that *do* have a certain tune and rhythm.
