A lack of play should be treated like malnutrition

A lack of play should be treated like malnutrition – it’s a health risk to your body and mind.
Be aware of play killers. Part of nourishing your play is putting yourself in an environment that supports and promotes that play.” (p.215)

Ref: (emphases in blue bold mine) Stuart Brown (2009) Play: How it shapes the brain, opens the imagination, and invigorates the soul. Avery: New York

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
