I first came across this book when I was in the 5th grade. I acquired a copy when our school gave away all library books on the premise that our school closed down. I spent many hours with it as a child. I let a best friend borrow the book in high school who enjoyed it so much, to my sadness, they refused to return it. I wanted to share it with my own kids one day. Years later, and 6 kids later, I was so happy to be able to purchase this book, it is enjoyed by my children now, ages 7 to 27, who take turns spending hours reading the variety of jokes, funny poems and folkloric pish-posh which definitely earns this book it's name as American 'Hodgepodge'. It is also an excellent book we take on long trips in the car, it definitely breaks the monotony and has everyone laughing and interacting.

I read this book in middle school and loved it. Now that I have kids I want them to learn from our folklore.

This was a book I used to check out of the library constantly as a child. I was sooo happy to find it here! I love this book and all of the 'hodgepodge' stuff inside.

This is a review for The Hodgepodge Book

Wow! This book brings back so many memories. When I was in about second or third grade, I discovered this book at the local library. Even then, I read anything I could get my hands on. Once I'd read this book, I checked it out, over and over again, much like the other reviewers.

I can't say enough good things about this book. It contains a lot of trivial information...but it is all very interesting, and set forth in an amusing fashion, so that it will keep the interest of whomever is reading it....be it a child, or even a parent!

After reading the passages, I remember it sparking discussions with my mother, about the various topics set forth therein. This is a great book to share with the whole family.

It appears difficult to find a copy for less than $45, but even at that price, it is highly worth it. This book will remain on your shelf for a lifetime....unless you pass it on to your own children!
As a child in the early 1970s, I attended C. H. Bird Elementary in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, a modern school with superb facilities and teachers (tip of the hat to Mr. Frank Peot, best teacher I ever had). Bird School had an outstanding library, and my first lengthy encounters with Beverly Cleary, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Charles Schulz were conducted there. But my favorite book in the entire library was "The Hodgepodge Book", filled with stories, jokes, games, and American folklore. I checked that book out countless times, fascinated with such things as advice on how to get rid of a sty (stand in the middle of a crossroads and recite "Sty, Sty, leave my eye; go to the next one passing by.") and the amazing knuckle calendar (to keep track of the long and short months of the year). I thought it was the greatest book in the world, and perhaps for that time and place, it was. This book reminds me of a time, long ago, when I was young, a East Coast city boy experiencing the rural Midwest for the first time. A time when playing hide & seek in a cornfield was an all-day event, and a 6-foot snowdrift was a welcome sight to a little boy's eyes. And not only a time, but a place: Sun Prairie (what a great name for a Midwest town!) was the sort of place where the arrival of spring was heralded by boys and girls getting their marbles out of storage and having intense playground marble competitions; a place of spelling bee champs (the 1974 state champ came from Bird School), annual corn festivals, free milk & peanut butter sandwiches in the lunch room, and fresh air and good people. It was sort of geeky, and completely "small town" . . . but nice. When I look back on it, Sun Prairie was the last chance I had to really be a kid, before moving again and facing the onset of junior high and all of the pressures involved. "The Hodgepodge Book" totally reflected that playful, comfortable, small-town spirit, and that's why I love it (and still read it) today. It took me literally years to find a copy, but it was worth the time and effort, and now it is one of my most prized possessions.
