Children are natural scientists, artists, mathematicians, authors, and scholars. From the time they are born they seek out information about the world around them in an effort to construct meaning and further their development. Children have an inherent drive to make sense of their reality, and when given an enriching environment and supportive guidance they intuitively take advantage of the prospects for learning that are before them. Parents and teachers have a unique opportunity to harness children’s curiosity and channel it into the development of habits of heart and mind that will serve them throughout their lifetime.

Playful Learning is the magic that takes place when we meld a child’s sense of joy and wonder with thoughtfully planned learning experiences. Through easy-to-implement, hands-on projects you can engage a child in fun and creative ways that encourage learning and impart the joy of discovery. In addition, discover ways to create a space conducive to learning and learn how to build a culture that celebrates learning.

“Parents, teachers, and caregivers alike will treasure this superb book! Mariah Bruehl brings the wisdom of a gifted educator and the heart of a devoted parent to each insight and activity contained within its pages. Readers will appreciate the warmth and accessibility with which she shares her ideas as much as the joyful family memories and passion for lifelong learning that are sure to follow.”–Emma Walton Hamilton, author of Raising Bookworms: Getting Kids Reading for Pleasure and Empowerment
