Honig, Alice
Young Children, v62 n5 p72-78 Sep 2007
Play is children's work. Alice Honig enumerates from the heart 10 ways in which children learn through play, including building dexterity; social skills; cognitive and language skills; number and time concepts; spatial understanding; reasoning of cause and effect; clarification of pretend versus real; sensory and aesthetic appreciation; extended attention span, persistence, and sense of mastery; and emotional release and relief from separation anxiety.
