Enhance the depth and richness of children's play. Developmentally appropriate play is complex, long-lasting, and all-engaging for children. It requires facilitation and guidance, thoughtful planning, and attention to the environment and materials. Developmentally Appropriate Play follows the new Developmentally Appropriate Practice guidelines from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and includes information to help you:

Identify and plan purposeful play
Guide children to make choices
Interact with children to enhance play
Provoke children into more complex play
Add representation to further enrich play
Incorporate standards into play

"Play is more than just wasting time; it's learning. Developmentally Appropriate Play: Guiding Young Children to a Higher Level is a guide for encouraging smart play in one's children and encouraging them to have more fulfilling experiences through their play. From weaving in education, interactions, and more, Gaye Gronlund offers much perspective on the power of play, and makes for quite the enlightening read for parents and early education teachers.
