First Paragraph:

I must say that my first impression of the third edition of Play and Child Development was: They did it AGAIN! Frost, Wortham, and Reifel again impressed me with the depth and breadth of their understanding of play in this book with significant updates related to research and practice. As I finished each chapter, I was left with the same tranquil satisfaction as if I had eaten a fine full-course meal. This book can be used in any child development course, early childhood education introductory courses, or early childhood curriculum courses, in addition to courses focusing on play.
