Let's Clap, Jump, Sing & Shout; Dance, Spin & Turn It Out! Games, Songs & Stories from an African American Childhood by Patricia C. McKissack; illustrated by Brian Pinkney

From beloved Newberry Honor-winning author and master storyteller Patricia C. McKissack and two-time Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Brian Pinkney comes an extraordinary one-of-a-kind collection of timeless playtime favorites.

Here are classic games, songs, stories, and more, recalled from the author's own childhood in the American South and lovingly passed down to a new generation.

Grab a partner for hand claps such as "Eenie Meenie Sassafreeny," or gather in a circle for games like "Little Sally Walker." Enjoy well-loved songs and poems like "Amazing Grace" and "The Ballad of John Henry, A Steel-Driving Man." And laugh out loud at the outrageous antics of Anansi the Spider, Br'er Rabbit, and Ti Malice.

Snuggle up and open this very special book, which is filled with all the joy of childhood and perfect for sharing with the whole family.

Update: Andrew L. will soon be singing and dancing along to the rhymes of this fun new book! Check in with us again on Wednesday, for our next giveaway.
