    Published by Redleaf Press

    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. Let's Play provides a variety of budget-friendly, child-centered experiences that lead to countless learning opportunities. Each chapter outlines an open-ended play adventure with instructions, photographs, and fresh ideas for children to explore everything from worms to magnets. These activity starters were all tested by a slew of early childhood professionals in a variety of settings—including classrooms and in-home child care programs—and approved by the children they work with. Each of the thirty-nine adventures are simple, flexible, engaging, and packed with learning, and they support the philosophy that the best learning is done when children are allowed freedom to play.
