About this title


Brings together much of the research and theoretical knowledge that exists regarding play as a medium of learning and development in the early childhood years. The editors provide an introduction and an historical overview, which are followed by 14 contributions discussing post-Piagetian perspectives, the development of pretense and narrative, children's understanding of symbolic relations, social and cultural perspectives, play as a context for assessment of young children, play in special populations, and physical environments. In addition, each chapter includes suggestions for researchers and the implications of our current state of knowledge for those who work with young children. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
