Summary "A book for anyone who has anything to do with children, Changing the World is Child's Play invites you to appreciate the importance of play and positive interactions with children - both for you as a potentially 'play-deprived' adult, and for the children you spend time with. It offers ways to engage in meaningful interactions with children for parents, family and early childhood educators"--Publisher information.
