When a Child Pretends: Understanding Pretend Play (DVD)

Continue shopping

Description:

For its lasting benefit to children, “play” goes well beyond the fun involved. This program observes young children in play sequences that require planning, negotiating, collaborating, taking roles and developing narratives. In these sequences, children explore language and the imaginative “as if” thinking that leads to advanced intellectual functioning. When a Child Pretends demonstrates that pretend play is an essential arena for the child’s intellectual, social, emotional, and imaginative development.

This documentary is one of four in The Learning Child Series, produced by Jonathan Diamond Associates, Inc. in association with the Child Development Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.  Each program includes a companion guide.
