Down by the River This is a welcome reprint of a popular anthology of Caribbean rhymes, games and songs, with evocative paintings by Caroline Binch which use a naturalistic style to portray children at play. The rhymes are often very funny, and some invite actions, dancing and song - with colloquial words explained in footnotes. An author's foreword reflects on her later surprise when she realised the interplay of other cultures in the rhymes she remembered as belonging exclusively to her Caribbean childhood.
