Synopses & Reviews
For engaging children's hands, minds, and imaginations, no tool surpasses blocks. Engrossed in building with blocks, the child is a mathematician, scientist, architectm stage designer, and storyteller. And as children build together, they stretch and grow as problem solvers and collaborators. The Block Book was the first comprehensive book to explore the values and uses of unit blocks for extending children's growth and development. This book, a classic in early childhood education, has been expanded and updated so that teachers and parents can discover exciting possibilities for the effective use of blocks. The time-tested understandings that have made The Block Book a classic are still here, refined and extended with new material that makes the third edition better than ever.
