"If you are seeking more enjoyment and deeper understandings as you watch children's play pursuits, this is a book you'll love! With their collection of stories, vivid photos, and reflections on children's joyful (and sometimes annoying) play, you won't find more curious or enthusiastic observers of children than Deb and Nadia." ----Margie Carter, early childhood author, mentor and consultant, co-founder, Inspire Study Tours in Aotearoa New Zealand

"Deb Curtis and Nadia Jaboneta have given teachers a roadmap for creating play experiences that not only honors childhood but also supports children's rapidly developing brains. Their work with my teachers at St. Vincent Early Learning Center has changed our practices and brought joy back to our work!" --Alissa Mwenelupembe, director of early learning, St. Vincent Early Learning Center
