For engaging children's hands, minds, and imaginations, no tool surpasses blocks. Engrossed in building with blocks, the child is a mathematician, scientist, architectm stage designer, and storyteller. And as children build together, they stretch and grow as problem solvers and collaborators.

The Block Book was the first comprehensive book to explore the values and uses of unit blocks for extending children's growth and development. This book, a classic in early childhood education, has been expanded and updated so that teachers and parents can discover exciting possibilities for the effective use of blocks.

The time-tested understandings that have made The Block Book a classic are still here, refined and extended with new material that makes the third edition better than ever.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

As illustrated by the chart at the front of this book, block building challenges the whole child. It builds self-confidence; it enhances social skills; it facilitates vocabulary development ; and it stimulates eyehand-body coordination, so important for the development of reading skills. In addition, it enriches the traditional subjects of the curriculum--mathematics, science, and social studies. As they build with blocks, children discover, invent, imagine, and construct a fuller understanding of their world.
