From the Publisher
"It is a delight to welcome this third edition of Play from Birth to Twelve, so brilliantly edited by Doris Pronin Fromberg and Doris Bergen. Such a comprehensive and genuinely helpful resource will prove of theoretical and practical value to all those who deal with children and who want to understand the roles of play in our early lives. Educators, health professionals, students, parents, museum personnel, city designers, and many others will find valuable material in these pages. The scope of the volume and its range of outstanding new and older research is a tribute to the insightful work of its editors. If the content of these essays directed more of our social and educational policy, we would surely have a better world."
Kieran Egan, Professor of Education at Simon Fraser University, Canada
"Broad and deep with appeal to a wide range of practitioners, theorists, researchers, policy makers, and parents, this brilliant book is needed today more than ever before. The editors have provided a rich treasure trove of everything we ever wanted to know about play from theory to practice, and the distinguished chapter authors are recognized experts on play, child development, and education. Teachers struggling with the disappearance of play from current educational settings will find this third edition, up to date with surprising new content and perspectives on the future, to be a comprehensive resource."
