“When we all join in, I feel like I belong. Let’s play!” Play is the essential activity of childhood. When children engage in healthy play, they develop motor skills, express themselves through music and art, grow cognitively, and create imaginative worlds. This simple, expressive board book vividly shares with toddlers and preschoolers the pleasures and discoveries of play as it explores playing independently, observing others, playing side by side, sharing, taking turns, and cooperating. Includes downloadable bonus activities.

“Cheri Meiners brings us another winning series, this time in the form of board books that are a joy to share with the toddler in your life. Each book offers simple yet powerful messages to help toddlers see and feel that they are loved, valued, and connected to the world. The series empowers children with a healthy sense of self while introducing timeless principles. The tips and activities at the end of each book provide parents and caregivers with ongoing support for a toddler’s healthy development.
