“Lisa Murphy says it exactly as it needs to be said. Play is the foundation. She says it with humor even as she backs it up with eons of research. But most importantly she shares the fire in her belly with us infusing us with her enormous passion and dedication to doing what’s best for children. I intend to have a copy of this book with me always―so that I can hand it out to people who need to read it for whatever reason!”―Tamar Jacobson, PhD, author of Don’t Get So Upset!

Make time on your schedule. Lisa Murphy On Play is not only a book you need to buy, it’s a book you need to read.―Jeff Johnson, author of Let Them Play

Lisa Murphy on Play: The Foundation of Children’s Learning comes from a ‘play advocate’ and early childhood education expert who has a clear understanding of the importance and role of play in the early education process, and who provides a fun primer directed to adults (teachers and parents alike) who want to incorporate more learning opportunities through play experiences. Chapters reduce this concept to seven basic routines that can easily be done with children on a daily basis, teaching how to make these seven methods a part of daily activities and how to connect them to basic concepts kids will learn from. From making time to move and grow to cultivating creativity and a sense of touch, this is a solid guide any adult can easily use with all children.―The Education Shelf, California Bookwatch
