Blocks are a timeless toy. They never stop challenging, stimulating, and engaging young children. Open ended and play based, blocks are essential to every child's creative, social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development. In addition, they nurture in young children important 21st-century skills such as initiative, persistence, critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration. Creative Block Play covers everything you need to encourage a child's development in a variety of domains through block play. This book is full of photos that illustrate block play in real classrooms and stories from teachers who have successfully used block play to encourage children's development.
