    When we collect children's stories, we strengthen their literacy skills and their ability to ask and answer questions. When we connect stories, we pave the way for making friends and for later reading comprehension, when children will need to connect books to themselves, other books, and the world.  When we nurture stories, we give children the opportunity to practice the social, emotional, and cognitive skills needed for creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.

When teachers engage in creative, open-ended play experiences, they learn firsthand the power of play. They also become more knowledgeable about the purposeful use of materials and intentional teaching strategies they can use to help children engage in open-ended play.

    “Big body play”—the sometimes rowdy, always very physical running, rolling, climbing, tagging, jumping, grabbing, and wrestling that most children love and many adults try to shut down—can and should be an integral part of every early childhood setting. Drawing from evidence-based practice and the latest research, this book explains the multitude of benefits of big body play for young children’s social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
