Circle 'Round the Zero
Play Chants and Singing Games of City Children
By Maureen Kennedy, illustrated by Robin Reikes

First published in 1974, this classic collection from Maureen Kennedy has been revised and edited to present classic children's songs, games, jump rope chants, and clapping games. These pieces come directly from children on the playground.  Maureen has researched and collected all of these wonderful activities both as a historian and as a music educator. She has preserved them in the written notation exactly as she heard the children play them.
