"A collection of easy-to-learn string figures and games. Step-by-step directions accompany the clear photographs of hands manipulating strings of different colors."-- School Library Journal

Everyone loves Cat's Cradle, but that's only one of many string games--and these come from a variety of cultures and countries around the world. Some are great for a single child, others are fun for a group, and all are photographed in close-ups that capture the hands in motion. Get started with simple figures like "Jacob's Ladder" and move on to "A Fishing Net" from Sierra Leone or a "Butterfly" from the Navajo. Each game includes information on the level and the loop length you'll need.
