VALUE OF PLAY (hb)2009
Author: PERRY ELSE
ISBN: 9780826448095
Year: 2009
Publisher: CONTINUUM BOOKS
Category: EDUCATION
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 167
 ABOUT THE TITLE
Most recognize that play is good for children yet we are confused by the dangers we see in the wider environment and so often restrict children’s natural opportunities to play. As a result children’s play has gained increased awareness amongst a variety of professions working with children, many of whom have different approaches to play and children. The Value of Play is explained using the Integral Play Framework, a model that draws together differing views on the purpose of play and its various types. These ideas are then used as the basis for chapters of the book: showing why playing is valuable to our bodies, our minds, and culturally and socially. There are examples of how play can be supported both informally and formally, at home and in children’s settings. As well as theory, there are relevant, practical approaches for play activities, and observations of playing children to help explain the processes. Key questions are asked at times to help those who may be engaged in a more reflective form of practice. The Value of Play has been written to be accessible by a broad spectrum of readers, including all those training to work with children; those specifically engaged in playwork as a field in itself; and those on Childhood Studies programmes.

Perry Else is Course Leader for BA Playwork at Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
