The philosophical foundation of my book in progress, “Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life,” is that all human development emerges from the interactions among playing, making, and knowing. In the development of children, play is absolutely essential and is in danger of being ignored by educators and politicians alike. Today’s post on the importance of play comes from the International Play Association in Europe, but is no less important for those of us in the United States to absorb its lessons and support play in the lives of children.
