9788186211427: Toys and Tales with Everyday Materials

This highly original craft book redefines play for today’s child and his or her educators. Featuring science notes and thoughtful essays on the politics of play, as well as folk toys made by children from throwaway things, the book draws on actual experiences in the classroom to argue its case.

"For those who value creativity over instant gratification and human growth over consumerism, Toys and Tales will strike a chord."—Wendy Varney
