FORMATS
Readers can hop, skip and jump their way through a trove of poems in Over in the Pink House: New Jump Rope Rhymes by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, illus. by Melanie Hall, each of which is rhythmically suited to the schoolyard. ""Jumping Spell,"" for instance, opens the collection: ""Candelabra,/ blade of grass,/ jump inside,/ a looking glass./ Tap of heel,/ holly tree,/ he will fall/ in love with me."" Often ethereal illustrations in pastels, inks and watercolors add to the dreamy rhymes on an array of subjects.
