As societies have changed so has the play of children-but has the need for children to play changed? The answer is no. Children need to play more than ever to help them cope with all the changes in the world around them and all the future changes that are eminent. As we move into the next millennium, play with all its inherent benefits for helping children grow and learn, develop social and physical skills, and enhance self-confidence and emotional strength is essential for success in the future. The articles in this book describe benefits and theories of play, the role of play in education and fitness, the role of play in a changing society, and the cry for play advocacy to protect the right of the child to play.
