Concentrating on lore gathered since World War II, Bronner has assembled an anthology of what children really say, not what adults wish they would say. It is through such shared lore—songs, expressions, games and beliefs—that children adapt to new situations. Bronner includes secret languages, jumprope rhymes, song parodies, games, taunts, tongue twisters, jokes, and more. These treasures make for nostalgic reading for adults who want to relive their own childhoods ... or gain a window to their own children's world.
