Let's Get the Rhythm

We finally got our hands on this documentary, which shows the power and prevalence of girl's poetry, as expressed through hand-clapping games around the world.  Fascinating!  And totally fun to see the three of us featured in it.  I'd forgotten that we'd done this until a colleague stopped me on campus and said, "hey, I saw you in a movie last night!" 

(Hint:  we were only in it for about ten seconds and it wasn't for my incredible hand-clapping skills, but for hand-clapping as an example of bonding time with young kids.  I do remember a few games from childhood - there must be something about the rhyming and the clapping that embeds them in your memory- but this documentary inspired me to want to learn more.)
