Product Description

The Sacred Urge to Play: Unfolding your child's intelligence, imagination, creativity and joy for life, is a guide book to play for parents and teachers of young children from 0-7. Within the pages of this book youÕll find all you need to make play central in the lives of your own children and/or in the lives of the children you teach. Neuroscientists have isolated three pivotal factors for Òa complex brain to create itselfÓ during the first seven years of life. The first factor is emotional nurture, that warm, empathetic relationship that grows into trust in human beings. Along with emotional nurture goes conversation; the child and adult enjoy each otherÕs company, they enjoy talking together. The third factor is play and lots of it. The living and learning that happen through play offers each child their best chance for health, happiness, and success in education and living - both now and in the future. There is no hurry for ÔschoolÕ learning. Study after study shows that leaving formal cognitively-based learning until after the brain has laid down the foundations required for abstract learning gives our children a ÔheadÕ start.
