Thinking about Children's Play: Play Is Not Work, Nor Is Work Play.
Elkind, David
Child Care Information Exchange, n139 p27-28 May-Jun 2001
Addresses the concept of "play as a child's work," from the viewpoints of Montessori, Freud, and Piaget. Contends that children's play: (1) like adult play, may be individual or social; (2) has immediate value for the child as a way of expressing feelings; and (3) is a healthy counterpoise to work. (SD)
