Based on the pioneering work of Mary D. Sheridan, Play in Early Childhood is a classic introductory text to play and development – key topics for all those who work with young children. Updated for a contemporary audience and fully evidence-based, it explains how children’s play develops and how they develop as they play.

With over eighty illustrations and observations of play from birth to six years, this new edition presents classical and contemporary literature, making clear links between play and all areas of children’s development. It includes activities to consolidate thinking and suggestions for further reading throughout. Play in Early Childhood considers:

the development, value and characteristics of play

issues relating to culture, adversity and gender

play from recreational, therapeutic and educational perspectives

the role of parents/caregivers and professionals in supporting play

Suitable for those new to the area or for more experienced workers wanting a quick reference guide, this easy-to-follow book meets the needs of students and professionals from a wide range of health, education and social care backgrounds, including early years professionals, playworkers, children’s nurses, speech and language therapists and social workers.

I chose this guide to play as I used Mary Sheridan’s “Development from Birth to Five Years” when at university and it was always an exceptionally useful text.

Although there are many books about children’s development, some of them do not mention the importance of play on their development.So are you looking for answers as a professional or as a parent/ guardian for how play is significant on children’s development? This book will help to find the answers of your questions. When I was doing my internship in the nursery, I found the book was very useful because I understand or comprehend the subjects which are available visually representative for readers.
