Hey Kids! Time For "Recess"

Recess.jpg
Chronicle Books
/

Don't you miss the teacher sending us out for recess?  All that running around on the playground gave us a chance to forget about math and spelling for a little while, and blow off some steam. 

And you know, it's not like anybody's STOPPING us from running outside for a little while each day. 

In fact, Ben Applebaum and Dan DiSorbo encourage us, in a book called Recess

It contains guides to playing the games of recess, for those of us who can't remember the rules (or the games themselves).  Ben and Dan, author and artist, visit The Exchange.
