Why People Play presents a stimulating approach that helps the reader answer these questions.

The author explores the implications of day care centers, the trend toward open classrooms and less formalized curricula, and the vast strides made in learning-through-play research.

The book also focuses attention on our changing lifestyle–away from the Puritan ethic of “living to work”–and toward a higher degree in the quality through “working to live” and points to the importance of play and leisure for all ages in the future.
