Let children experience the learning power of play-together! Let's All Play provides all-new adventures that support children's social skill development through thoughtful group play, interaction, and conversation. These play experiences help children engage with each other and the world around them, all of which leads to rich learning. This book also encourages adults to reflect on the value of children's play through deep thinking activities.
Let's All Play builds on the early learning principles presented in Jeff A. Johnson and Denita Dinger's first book together, Let Them Play, and the open-ended learning adventures in their second book, Let's Play.
Jeff A. Johnson spent twenty-five years as a child care provider in centre- and home-based programs. He now works full time as an author, keynote speaker, podcaster, toymaker, and early learning advocate. He is the author or co-author of many other Redleaf Press books. Denita Dinger has been a child care provider for more than fifteen years and operates a family child care program. For the last five years, she has been a frequent keynote speaker at early childhood conferences, focusing on the topics of hands-on learning, learning through play, and transitioning early learning programs from a teacher-controlled environment to one that is child-led and play-based.
