Risky Business: Making Inferences about Risk and Its Value. Book Review.
Pellegrini, Anthony D.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v14 n3 p435-38 1999
Evaluates the extent to which Smith's work adds to the theoretical and evidentiary basis for the role of playgrounds in children's education and development. Finds the basic construct of "risk" as presented in the book to be unfocused, and suggests that to make inferences from the work about the value of risk for children is premature. (HTH)
