The Lore of the Playground: The Children's World – Then and Now
`Carefully researched, elegantly written and well presented ... an absolute treasure chest of children's folklore ...Whether your interest is folklore, nostalgia or trivia, or you simply want a resource book of games and rhymes, this magnum opus will not disappoint' --Times Educational Supplement`[A] delightful compendium ... Roud's indefatigable research proves that a great variety is still being played ... An appealing picture of our children emerges from this book ... As [it] richly demonstrates, there is much that is new to celebrate' --Sunday Times`Steve Roud's magisterial The Lore of the Playground takes us deeper in to a collective experience' --The Times Christmas Books`Charming ... This is a book to bring pure, childlike joy, as you remember games and rhymes forgotten for a lifetime' --Mail on Sunday`[A] fascinating study ... Roud's book celebrates a creativity that is as amazing as it is anonymous ... a terrific book - full of detail, nostalgia and surprises and relentlessly upbeat' --The Times`Childhood memories will keep flooding back as you flick through this well researched and readable book' --Countryman`There is much that is reassuring in this book, which shows the resilience of childhood traditions ... Childhood is a realm we have all inhabited, and it is extraordinary how a jingle, or [a] phrase ... can transport us back to a world of rituals, games and traditions as unbending as those of the Medes and Persians. If you want to make that journey, The Lore of the Playground will certainly point the way' --Spectator`Roud traces enduring traditions, debunks cherished myths and proves beyond all doubt that commentators who insist that children no longer know how to play are simply not looking, or listening, carefully enough' --Time Out`Based on interviews with hundreds of people aged from eight to 80, Roud has created a fascinating portrait of childhood in Britain' --Sun`Mr Roud has collected skipping rhymes, nonsense rhymes, "rude and horrible rhymes", clapping games, and much more, and compared them with the lore of old' --Times Literary Supplement`A highly detailed collection ... In short, this magnum opus is a treasure of a book to be frequently consulted' --Good Book Guide`A superb piece of scholarship but also a quite splendidly satisfying dip-and-read book' --School Librarian`A meticulously researched project which took me back to my own childhood' --Bookbag.com
