What Will We Play Today? contains 100 games for children aged 0-5 years based on drama, movement and music. It is sure to become a popular resource for anyone working with young children. The book contains games to encourage children's physical, creative and language development. The traditional games from around the world will help to develop children's understanding of the world. There are movement and action games, listening and singing games and passing and falling games. Most of the games do not require special resources. Where resources are needed, they are easily obtainable, such as balls, hoops and dressing-up clothes. Many of the games can be readily adapted to provide additional elements or increased challenges as children grow and develop. The games have a strong emphasis on the process of playing rather than on winning.
