Customer Review

on November 16, 2008
As a parent and former teacher, I was drawn to Nancy Carlsson-Paige's new book because I have been familiar with her groundbreaking work on young children's war play, "The War Play Dilemma" and know that she has been working, quietly and not so quietly, to effect change in the way we raise our children in this culture. She is a strong advocate for the kind of childhood I have been trying to provide for my own children, but I find it increasingly difficult to find kindred spirits who limit "screen time" and allow for plenty of "down time" for their kids. Nancy's book gives me hope that we can rescue creative play and advocate for its importance to healthy development, build closer connections to our children, help them develop the kind of empathy the world needs, and teach them to "talk back to consumerism." Most of all, it helps me feel that it's not just me against the corporations--that we parents can support each other as we try to hang on to childhood for our children--and it reminds us that childhood is not a race, but a journey....Every parent, grandparent, caregiver, and teacher needs a copy of this book!
