Reviews
"A wonderful look at how playing can heal children, how in "pretend-worlds" they can find their truest selves. [Linn's] fierce advocacy for kids is on every page of this terrific book."
--The Boston Globe

"[A] welcome addition to such books as D.W. Winnicott's Playing and Reality, Bruno
Bettleheim's The Uses of Enchantment, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's Flow."
--Library Journal

"Linn brings invaluable expertise to this well-organized and straightforward exploration of a neglected subject."
--Booklist
