Play can be fun, but sometimes, it can be painful or discouraging. Children might fight over toys, friends, or rules. Children might feel left out, or they may not fit into the group.This workbook will broaden your knowledge about the important topic of play, and it will help you explore common challenges children might experience in play. Hands-on techniques, assessments, reflection questions, and exercises are included to help you more effectively support and strengthen children's play.
