"I Did It Myself": The Necessity of Solo Play for Preschoolers.
Katz, Jill C.; Buchholz, Ester S.
Early Child Development and Care, v155 p39-50 Aug 1999
Research on solitary play most often views solitary in contrast to social play. Children who play alone more than is typical fall into four groups: shy and non-shy soloists, isolated, and depressed children. Only the latter two groups present clear concerns during the preschool years. Solo play should be viewed as an important developmental capacity in its own right. (EV)
