Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The purpose of this book is to show how children use their traditional lore to cope with the stresses of their lives and to learn what it means to be a member of a human society. The subjects' ages ranged from grade-school children through college freshman, located in forty-three states, the Virgin Islands, the Canal Zone, and American military bases abroad. The materials in this collection were drawn from a random sample.

Synopsis:

Children's folklore--those customs, rhymes, games, jeers, songs, superstitions, stories, and pranks that children play among themselves--serves an important purpose: it helps them deal with feelings and taboo subjects which they are unable to express individually.

Well, I'd be more than happy to review it; however, I have not a copy, nor have I seen it about. If I can change that I would gladly write a review. Cheers.
