This newly revised edition describes how children in an early community were expected to help out with chores at home and had little time to play. But recess time at school gave children the opportunity to play Schoolyard Games. Colorful illustrations help explain early versions of: skipping, hopscotch, and clapping games; string and hoop games; group games, hiding games, and ball games; and marbles, tops, and other toys.
