    Re: I don't understand "play round and round"

    Round and round is the name of a board game that Morton likes to play. Lola says she really doesn't like playing that board game 'cause all you do is go (a)round and (a)round. It's boring. That is, the game piece goes around the board, again and again. There is no end or goal.
