Children explore and relate to their world through play, and something magical happens when it’s time for games and a caring adult dons the cloak of playful lightheartedness. Please, Can We Play Games? offers the author’s forty years of creating, collecting, and playing traditional and original verses, songs, and games for early childhood circle time or home play. As you make your way through the pages of this book, may you enjoy your own personal harvest of food for the young child’s body, soul, and spirit. Perhaps for you too!
