Loose Parts 2: Inspiring Play with Infants and Toddlers

Written by Miriam Beloglovsky
Non-Fiction

What I love about this book is the way that the authors transform everyday items most of us have on hand into lovely and inviting collections for children's play. From muffin tins and buttons to salad spinners and rubber tires, they remind us how much more versatile these objects are than conventional toys. The authors are early childhood educators and you can tell; there are chapters on filling and dumping, stacking, connecting and disconnecting. While the text is good, most of the information is in the photos. Nothing they present looks too difficult or time consuming to try at home. I know my 9 month old would enjoy all of these ideas and they'd work with up to preschool aged kids as well.
