Because settler children were expected to help with chores at home, there was often little time for play. Recess time at school gave children the opportunity to play schoolyard games. Colorful illustrations in this children's book (ages 6-14) help explain early versions of skipping, hopscotch, clapping games, string and hoop games, group games, hiding games, ball games, marbles, tops, and more.
