Highest Quality Early Childhood Development through Honoring Relationships Rooted in Equity and Social Justice

Watch Me Play, Watch Me Learn is full of captivating photos of children at play. Their play tells the story of learning. The authors gave the children beautiful, colorful and interesting open-ended  materials, then sat back and watched their curiosity take over as they played. The text is written to highlight the child’s critical learning during play and also comes with additional ideas for how adults can extend children’s learning. The children range in age from 9 months to five years old, with attention given to diversity, gender and special needs. Watch Me Play, Watch Me Learn is also available in Spanish.
