Let's Play!: Poems About Sports and Games from Around the World - Debjani Chatterjee, Shirin Adl, Brian D'Arcy

“Let’s play!” No better summertime invitation exists. And that’s exactly how editors Debjani Chatterjee and Brian D’Arcy invite readers into their latest compilation of poetry, Let’s Play! Poems about Sports and Games from around the World (Frances Lincoln, $19.99). This joyful collection travels the globe, the game spectrum, and time. It highlights play as diverse as tobogganing, kung fu, and Snakes and Ladders, poetic forms from shape poems to simple rhymes, and even reaches into the 19th century for a spirited remembrance of a cricket match. Shirin Adl’s accompanying illustrations are equally exuberant, employing collage and drawing to create bright representations of the joy of play, in whatever form, in whatever place. Ages 5-10. Amy Dickinson
