Book Condition: Good/Very Good

Description: A collection of well-known (and some not so well-known!) nursery rhymes – some of which are accompanied by a musical score – and instructions on how to adapt them for skipping. Rhymes fall under one of three categories: Skipping by yourself, Skipping with friends, and Skipping with lots of friends. Also includes instructions for French skipping.
Delightful, full-page illustrations, plus some nostalgic 1970s photographs (all in full-colour), throughout – many of which are double-spread. Illustrated pastedowns and endpapers.
As is the case with most matt board Ladybirds, the spine and corners are bumped. There is also some light wear to the boards. The pages are in very good condition: unmarked and uncreased. The previous owner has neatly printed their name on the fep and contents page.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. 51 pp.
