    1. This book is a compilation of Afro-Caribbean rhymes, games, and songs for young children. This book is a great collection of rhymes, songs, and games because many of them reflect customs specific to that culture. Many of the games and songs include dialects and vernacular specific to that particular culture. The author, Grace Hallworth was born in Trinidad and expressed that many of the excerpts used in the book were from the memory of her childhood which she thought originated from Trinidadian [...]

    2. This book is full of interesting Afro-Caribbean rhymes, games and songs. Thou there was a variety of rhymes and games, they sound foreign to the average UK child who would be unfamiliar with the traditional tunes. An attached song sheet would be helpful and entertaining. it is more meaningful to sing in a tune.

    3. this is a better book than the two stars. these are "afro caribbean rhymes" that just don't move or reach me. but the art is nice and the writing true.
