"The most brilliant and intuitive, as well as the clearest written, work in this field.
It is unpretentious yet clearly the most authoritative work that has been published."

Here is an intensely practical book that gives specific illustrations of how therapy can be implemented in play contacts, and tells how the toys of the playroom can be vivid performers and aids in growth.

It's all here in an important and rewarding book for parents, teachers, and anyone who comes in contact with children.
