"A brilliant piece of work! Best, most inspiring new thinking that makes the connection between play, research, and early learning standards clear and compelling. Powerful insights answer the question 'How do I as a teacher use what children do best to help them gain essential concepts and skills needed to succeed in school and life?' Tom Rendon and Gaye Gronlund have set the foundation for putting play right at the heart of the curriculum and high quality professional development like no other book I have read!"
--Walter F. Drew, EdD, Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Self Active Education, Board Member for The Association for the Study of Play, and Co-Author of From Play to Practice: Connecting Teachers Play to Children's Learning

"Saving Play is a delightful book--using research and written by an administrator and a practitioner--a great combination. Who says play is antithetical to learning? Even learning based on standards. Rendon and Gronlund show us how play is integral to helping children learn, and not just an extra that gets thrown in for 10 minutes between 'learning activities.' Playful learning is essential to helping children think, learn, and remember. Bravo for bringing these important ideas to life!"
--Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D. University of Delaware and author of Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells Us About Raising Successful Children

"A timely survival guide. This wonderfully challenging, readable book invites us to sharpen our perceptions of a whole range of state and national standards and to share responsibility for explaining them to teachers and parents and the public. As a standards-resister myself, I've just been won over. Read this book!"
-- Elizabeth Jones, Faculty emerita, Pacific Oaks College, author of The Play's the Thing and Playing to Get Smart

"Saving Play is packed with research and resources that link academic learning and play experiences. Engage in provocative questions for teachers and administrators to help to effectively share the importance of play in early learning with others, and help to restore play to its proper role as both fun and educational . . . Highly recommended for school district and academic library Teacher Education collections." --Midwest Book Review
