Amazon Customer Reviews of Miss Mary Mack and Other Children's Street Rhymes

  • I had this book as a kid and totally remember all of these games. So happy to pass down all these to my girls and see them treaching their friends. I couldn't believe all the girls in my neighborhood had never played hand clapping games
  • When I saw this book I just had to get it, the memories I had just thumbing thru were fantastic. I have 2 girls who love the clapping games and now I can relive some memories by playing it with them.
  • Classic play ground sing songs, that pleased my six year old as well as both Grandmothers. So hand games, patty cake, skipping rope, classic fun.
  • Filled in the blanks for all those songs we used to sing...
