Let children experience the learning power of play

Children’s play is focused, purposeful, and full of learning. As children play, they master motor development, learn language and social skills, think creatively, and make cognitive leaps. This (un)curriculum is all about supporting child-led play, trusting children as capable and engaged learners, and forgoing packaged curriculums and prescribed activities. Let Them Play explains the guiding principles of an (un)curriculum and how it gives children the freedom to play, includes suggestions to create spaces that promote healthy development and learning, and supports those who believe in the learning power of play.

Review:


“It’s strange how the words, “Go play!” conjure up some of our happiest memories as kids―and our deepest fears as parents? If kids are just PLAYING, aren't they missing out on learning? The opposite is true, as Jeff Johnson and Denita Dinger deftly prove in this great read, which reminds us all that games and play aren't the empty calories of childhood―they're the vitamins, the vegetables, the protein, AND the sprinkles.”
―Lenore Skenazy, author of the book and blog, Free-Range Kids

Let Them Play: An Early Learning (Un)Curriculum is a book you should wrap your arms around and hold close to your heart. Don’t let it out of your sight. It constantly reminds us that play is not just a conversation, but also a combination of beliefs and practices. This book is filled with current research on why play is so important. At the same time, it fills our hearts and minds with fun, creative, and child-friendly ideas that extend the curiosity of children.”
―Daniel Hodgins, early childhood consultant and author of Boys: Changing The Classroom, Not the Child
