Double Dutch: A Celebration of Jump Rope, Rhyme, and Sisterhood

Veronica Chambers, Author, Tonya Lewis-Lee, Introduction by Hyperion Books $18.99 (72p) ISBN 978-0-7868-0512-9
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..."").
