This new collection of traditional singing games is similar in format to Jump Jim Joe. Andy Davis and the Amidons have put gathered some of their favorite singing games and music/movement activities collected over the last ten years since the Amidons published Jump Jim Joe. Andy joins the Amidons and some local children (including Andy's son Arthur) in a wide range of arrangements of the songs to the singing games for the CD. The book has the clear instructions that characterize all of the New England Dancing Masters materials.
