    I bought this book for my daughter She s a bit young for the amount of text in the book, but we are able to discuss the pictures and I can summarize the points being made by the author The book encourages those that read it to look at play behavior in animals to understand the types of communication that go into successful play It looks at how different animals initiate play, and what happens when an animal gets too excited and accidentally hurts another animal This was very helpful for my daughter because she could see that animals made mistakes when they played, and they had a way of apologizing and continuing to play Another helpful aspect, from a parents perspective was a reminder that play is important for adult life Play teaches important physical, social, and mental skills that are used later in life Finally, as I mentioned before, the book encourages paying attention to animal play behavior, essentially prompting children to play at ethology, but also honing observational skills that they will use the rest of their life.

    Great, easy read explaining how various animals know when their companions are being playful or aggressive Many of these rules can apply to children as well The first rule of play Everyone has to want to play So obvious but yet so profound.
