The Book of Play

Published on Nov 18, 2015

Every child has the right to play. Take a moment today to bring a smile to a child's face and play, play, play.


The Book of play

Play is letting go...

Into a web of wonder 

Play takes us to the highest heights

It's hands on discovery

Play is a little push and a little pull

and a little round and round and around

Play is timeless and keeps us young at heart

It's something to jump about

Play is a journey

full of ups and downs

Play is adventure

all for one and one for all

and balls and balls of fun

Play is sea, sky, stone
