    As seen on public television, this four-program set has been created to assist educators and parents in guiding children to become motivated, thoughtful and active learners.  Including a companion guide with each program, the series examines such habits of mind as personal curiosity, problem solving, "as-if" thinking and acceptance of different points of view.  While each program explores a different topic, literacy, play, ethics and the environment, all encourage a lifelong interest in learning itself.

    How can children be encouraged to make a lasting connection to nature? This program profiles the efforts of educators and parents to introduce children to the natural world and to involve them—through outdoor play, class activities, and their own creative work—in a process of outdoor discovery. Beyond the immediate benefits to child development that come with exploration and improvisational learning, the program documents how meaningful time spent outdoors can cultivate in children a permanent caring for nature—a crucial ethic of environmental responsibility.

    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.
