Summary Play is important for children's growth and development, and more and more play areas are designed specifically for very young children. Designing early learning places extends beyond the library into library gardens, the community mall, and the homeless shelter. It's what you do with the space to create a "place" that will magnetically draw children into the kind of play that engages and inspires them.-- (Source of description not identified)
