Playworks Founder Jill Vialet Publishes ‘Why Play Works’

  1. Updates

Play brings out the best in every kid.

Over the course of 25 years since Jill Vialet founded Playworks, she and her colleagues, as well as researchers and play experts, have demonstrated precisely how and why play works to help kids learn and grow in the most positive and healthy ways.

Jill gathered stories from people who have worked with Playworks to identify the 20 small steps that lead to big change.

In her new book Why Play Works, you’ll hear their stories, understand the changes made through play, and learn what you need to know to create a similar impact. The book also covers the intersectionality between play and racial equity, gender equity, science and play theory, and more.
