Summary

How do children make sense of their world? This engaging book adds keen insight into why outdoor play is a significant yet frequently overlooked aspect of young children's development. Analyzing play within a framework of "initiation, negotiation, and enactment," Jane Perry not only shows how teachers can support self-directed pretend play, but also connects and illustrates theories of play and children's culture.
