THe contents of this books allows my undergraduates to align play in the right context. Allowing for depth to be added to their work. I have adopted this book and recommended that the LRC and the students purchase the book as it will help them throughtout their three year degree programme.
This is a useful book that explores a variety of perspectives, key concepts and contemporary debate in the realm of play. Well written, with a range of opportunities for students to develop understanding through case studies and reflective questions. An essential read for anyone studying early childhood.
This book looks at play from a range of perspectives; from a gendered perspective; from a risk perspective; a developmental perspective, and a rights perspective. A great book for ECS students and practitioners.
A useful resource that considers a variety of perspectives and encourages reflection.
