Michael Rosen's Book of Play

Michael Rosen’s Book of Play – AD sent for review and giveaway

Today see’s the publication of Michael Rosen’s Book of Play through Profile Books. The book is published in connection with the Wellcome Collection. Known for his wonderful children’s books, including one of our own favourites We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Michael Rosen wants to promote the whole idea of play.

Michael Rosen's Book of Play

I think we’re all well aware that schools are under so much pressure to test our children at every possible opportunity.  I’m lucky that my nine-year-old son isn’t a big tech fan, so he rarely uses my iPad and doesn’t have a phone.  But a lot of his friends are already big gamers. The whole idea of Michael Rosen’s Book of Play is to remind us all to bring more play into our lives.

Believing that play helps children to learn how to cope with change and become more flexible in their outlook, he discusses ideas to promote play, both indoors and out.  Whether it be with instruments, role-playing or just by drawing the Eiffel Tower, Michael Rosen’s Book of Play is full of ways to promote play for all the family to enjoy.
