Leona Lee and Yun Yoo drew a hopscotch course on their sidewalk.
Leona offered, “Why not double it?”
Yun countered, “Triple!”
They drew around their block and, as they were pointed that way, they continued north, through Canada, turning at Alaska. They made friends with whales who helped them cross the Bering Sea and created a whale hopscotch involving breaches.
The girls drew through Russia, China, the Gulf states, African deserts and jungles, across the Atlantic on a boat now marked for hopscotch, through South and Central America until they reached home, nearly too exhausted to play—but not quite.
