'The book is highly recommended particularly for early years teachers and teachers in training where the findings and general comments will give a good underpinning to classroom practice' - Early Years

In this book, the authors present an interpretative account of a piece of collaborative action-research into children's blockplay during a three-year project. Children from three to seven years, early years teachers, nursery nurses, and two members of staff from the Froebel Institute College, Roehampton Institute, all acting as participant observers, shared in the discovery of the blockplay.
