Contents Introduction -- PART ONE: What sparks children's imagination? -- Found surprises -- Enticing spaces -- Together in the moment -- Graphic exploration: a universal form of play -- "Nothing is born of nothing" -- PART TWO: Nourishing and supporting creative thinking -- Learning from children -- Reflections to build on -- Time, space and materials -- Final words -- Practical matters.
Summary The author opens our eyes and ears to what is happening under our noses when children play with anything from seedpods to felt-tip pens or even an iPad. Kolbe's stories reveal that unstructured and unhurried play, as neuroscientists, psychologists and educators have long said, encourages children to become imaginative and inventive thinkers.
