Essays, photographs and snazzy graphics combine in Double Dutch: A Celebration of Jump Rope, Rhyme, and Sisterhood by Veronica Chambers. The volume chronicles the history of the sport and profiles double-Dutch devotees, including eight-year-old Bronx resident Tahira Reid, who invented an automatic rope-turning machine, and Miho, who was inspired to start the first Japanese double-Dutch team after watching a video of a U.S. team in action. Sidebars present a plethora of popular rhymes (e.g., ""Miss Susie Had a Steamboat...""; ""Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around..."").
