When kids must decide who goes first, they often turn to a quick game of Rock Paper Scissors. But have you ever wondered how that game got started? Drew Daywalt and Adam Rex teamed up to offer a humorous take on the game. Here are a few activities to pair with The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors.
About The Book
You’ve played the game. Now read the legend of the three great warriors who started it all…
Long ago, in an ancient and distant realm called the Kingdom of Backyard, there lived a warrior named ROCK. Meanwhile in the Empire of Mom’s Home Office, a second great warrior sought the glory of battle. And his name was PAPER. At the same time, in the Kitchen Realm, in the tiny village of Junk Drawer, lived a third warrior. They called her SCISSORS.
These three were the strongest, smartest, and fastest in all the land. Time and again they beat the most fearsome opponents they could find: an apricot, a computer printer—even frozen, breaded, dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets! But when the warriors finally meet each other, the most epic round of battles begins . . . and never ends. That is why, to this day, children around the world honor these worthy adversaries by playing ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS!
