Bernard DeKoven

"The idea of playful learning removes the artificial and harmful separation between learning and play, between home and school. The values it conveys and the benefits it offers us are both finite and infinite. —Bernard DeKoven, author of The Well-Played Game, A Playful Path, and the Deep Fun website" - Bernard DeKoven

Midwest Book Review, Wisconsin Bookwatch

"...a 184 page collection of playful activities that will support and complement a classroom curriculum with games and activities that can be made almost entirely from common household recyclables. Each individual activity includes simple instructions for creating the game or toy and a list of educational and developmental benefits. These classroom based activities are nicely organized into five chapters based on skills being applied, and skills in number sense, objects in motion, and speaking and language are developed along the way. . . .Thoroughly 'user friendly', "The Power of Playful Learning: The Green Edition" is very highly recommended as a school curriculum resource for preschool through fifth grade classes." - Midwest Book Review, Wisconsin Bookwatch

Teacher Librarian, "Resources for the Teacher Librarian" - Elizabeth "Betty" Marcoux

"Play has theoretical and practical places in education. Play has a place in the library too. This book takes the essence of play and attaches it to curriculum, as well as learning objectives. Yet it involves the use of common things around the house, not expensive equipment or supplies. Each activity includes reasons for it, simple instructions, and developmental benefits. A book for the early learners at your school, it helps teachers and teacher librarians incorporate many issues of play: collaboration, learning, tactile approaches, math, sequencing, connections, relationships, etc. The activities can be incorporated into active learning situations and multiple themes and are an excellent way to involve recycling and parent assistance. Recommended." - Teacher Librarian, "Resources for the Teacher Librarian"
