Today, we don't get nearly enough play in our lives. At school, kids are drilled on exams, while at home we're all glued to our phones and screens. Former children's laureate and bestselling author, Michael Rosen, is here to show us how to put this right - and why it matters so much for creativity, resilience and much more. Packed with silliness, activities and prompts for creative indoor and outdoor play for all ages - with specially illustrated pages for everything from doodling to word play and after-dinner games.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Play, make-believe, nonsense talk, it all comes naturally to us when we're young. As one of our most beloved children's authors, poets and storytellers, it's a knack Rosen has never grown out of ... Yet now, more than ever, Rosen argues that there's an important role for play in all our lives. -- Boudicca Fox-Leonard * Sunday Telegraph *
The former children's laureate advocates play for everyone, young or old. The book has a friendly, lively tone as it explores role play, ad-libbing, dressing up, toys, art, stories and wordplay. * i Newspaper *
