Using play as a teaching tool in children from birth to age eight is extremely effective in promoting their social/emotional, cognitive, and physical development. By reviewing current research in this publication, readers will learn how they can initiate a play-based education program for infants and toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarten children and primary-age children. Pictures, charts, and cartoons successfully illustrate the discussions. The author also presents specific steps for arranging a classroom that promotes play, including lists of appropriate books, materials and activities for play centers. One full section focuses on fostering play in children with special needs, and related recommendations are made throughout.
