Two thumbs up
Whenever we read a book or watch a movie, we're on the lookout for the
presence of Streetplay. In this review section, we catalog some of the best
we've seen to date. If you have something you'd like us to consider for
review, please contact us!
Last Licks: This is wonderful children's book about a girl, her
lucky spaldeen, and the trouble it gets her into when she loses it. This
review includes an interview with the author, Cari Best.
Sewer Balls: Steven Schindler's novel about Catholic school
eighth graders in the northwest Bronx encompasses many of the cultural
happenings of the early 1960s. It's an ambitious and enjoyable novel that
captures the flavor of both New York City and the adolescent experience.
The Games We Played: Steven Cohen interviewed many celebrities,
and came up with this collection of childhood reminiscences from a diverse
group of celebrities, from Bill Clinton to Esther Williams.
The Pinky Ball Book: Part of Workman Press's childhood game
instructional series, this book explains eveything you might want to do with a
rubber ball--and comes with one to boot!
The Jacks Book: Another in the Workman Press's series, we don't
know what's better: the book itself which explains the games, or high-quality
metal jacks--and little ball--that are supplied!
