I came across this book, brand new in a charity shop, & thought it sounded interesting as I too was a child of the 1950s. I was not disappointed: it reminds me so much of my own days of hop scotch & skipping rhymes & playing out whenever the weather was fit, to name but a few of the memories brought back. This is classed as a children's book, yet for us of a certain age, it is still a very gripping read. The simple, yet very good drawings add to the attraction of this lovely book.
A very enjoyable read which I highly recommend to both adults & children of all ages.
