The BeginAgain workshop is proud to introduce the first collection of ideas inspired by the world of Benjamin Barlowe. Mr. Barlowe wrote about 5 distinct styles of play that children engage in daily. His journal entries detail the whirlwind way children bounce from one play pattern to the next. He describes days with crayons everywhere, action figures in the couch and under the table, soccer practices, dance classes, dress up parties, bath time, and stories before bed....WHEW!
