Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Extensive empirical research has documented the value of play for both cognitive and social development. Despite the evidence, educators and policy makers are eliminating the free play periods that have long been a central part of a young child's experience in preschool and childcare. In Children's Play, leading experts in play research, child development, and early childhood education examine recent policy decisions and demonstrate the importance of play in helping children learn basic literacy skills, social awareness, and creative problem solving. Readers will also find a comprehensive summary of the developmental benefits of play, examples of how research has been applied in practice, a multicultural perspective on play, and ideas for how to play imaginative games with children.

Book News Annotation:

Zigler (Center in Child Development and Social Policy, Yale University) assembles experts in play research, child development, and early childhood education to examine recent policy decisions affecting play in the early childhood classroom and to demonstrate the importance of play in helping children learn basic literacy skills, social awareness, and creative problem solving. Contributors summarize the developmental benefits of play, give examples of how research has been applied in practice, and offer a multicultural perspective.
