ABOUT THIS BOOK
There has been a growing awareness in recent years of the importance of play in children’s learning and development—but that awareness has not been accompanied by sufficient scholarly attention, outside of conceptual studies and how-to textbooks. This collection fills that gap by bringing together scholars from a range of fields and methodological approaches to look at play from a practice-based perspective. Moving beyond the dominant voice of developmental psychology, the book offers a number of new ways of approaching children’s play and the roles of adults in supporting it; as a result, it will be valuable to anyone working with or studying children at play.
