Originally published in 1986, in this compendium of recent research on children’s play, acknowledged experts review the latest methodologies and ideas, examine salient problems, and reveal the application of current knowledge in several areas of professional practice at the time. Exciting new results embracing a wide area of investigation – the development and measurement of play in young children, the training of symbolic play, play and learning with computers, language play, play and handicapped children, play therapy, and outdoor play – will still be of considerable interest to teachers, nursery and day care personnel, social workers and students of psychology and education.
