Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An examination of the secret world of children that shows how important special places are to a child's development.<P>From the ages of five to twelve, the middle years of childhood, young people explore their surroundings and find or construct private spaces. In these secret places, children develop and control environments of their own and enjoy freedom from the rules of the adult world.
