This book brings a refreshing Vygotskian perspective to the importance of children’s play, and the role it has in the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children. The authors use a praxeological approach and participatory, ethical research to provide a comprehensive yet accessible addition to the crucial and expanding field of Early Years play.

Including illustrative vignettes and case studies, and covering a range of contexts, theories and approaches, the experienced authors explore a variety of topics, including:

  • Role-play and Early Years practice
  • Incorporating technology into practice
  • Scenario and role development
  • Play in the home as well as the classroom

Endorsed by EECERA, A Vygotskian Analysis of Children's Play Behaviours is an ideal choice for Early Years practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and academics researching or lecturing in early childhood education.
