Fred Rogers said, "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." Ms. Davis' book is a guide for parents and other "grown-ups" to make the most of their children's "work time". Not only are developmental milestones identified but there is solid research on what play is most engaging for a child at each milestone.The information is well researched and there is an "acorn" of knowledge on every page! I sat down with a highlighter to read this short, informative book. When I found myself tempted to highlight a whole page, I traded it for a pencil to write in the margins! It is my hope that every parent/caregiver would read this regardless of their income level/education/culture/environment. There is something for every "grown-up" and every child in these pages.
