Providing an overarching concept of play, drawing together the evidence-base across disciplines and linking theory to practice, the Companion to Professional Play Practice is the ideal handbook for all those working with children.Play acts as a natural resource for children to meet physical, intellectual and emotional challenges and this book, unusually, considers play from childrena (TM)s perspectives rather than adults.
