Note: Step It Down book: "This is just a jump; it's a play that we always played. Mama used to play it too. I have it now for the children; they stands in a line or either in a ring as they want to but they all jump, you know, dance this. It's a hard jump; it's good for you, makes you strong. I played it with the children this morning and one boy said, 'Oh, tell me when to stop! Just stop me!' He was really doing it."
