A happy childhood is full of games, and here are some big bright books to remind us of how varied they can be. Clapping Games and More Clapping Games by Jenny Mosley and Helen Sonnet collect dozens of pieces of rhythmic fun, using a range of claps, slaps, stamps and steps to punctuate comic and catchy rhymes. Playground Games features tactical thinking, collaboration between players and a strong dash of imagination, whether taking on the role of an insect, a wizard, an ice king or a horse.

Skipping Games bring mobile bodies and active minds together in memorable pleasure. Clapping Games, Playground Games and Skipping Games all cost Pounds 15.99 and More Clapping Games costs pound;12.99 from Positive Press.
