A wide-ranging, stimulating examination of play, for practitioners (mainly teachers) across the 3- to 8-year-old range, unified by the shared belief that practitioners should be advocating strongly in support of a greater understanding of the potential contribution of play to children's development and learning. The 15 chapters are organized into four sections: the culture of play and childhood; play, schooling and responsibilities; play and the early years curriculum; and assessing and evaluating play.
