[Linn's] fierce advocacy for kids is on every page of this terrific book." --The Boston Globe "[A] welcome addition to such books as D.W. Winnicott's Playing and Reality, Bruno Bettleheim's The Uses of Enchantment, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's Flow." --Library Journal "Linn brings invaluable expertise to this well-organized and straightforward exploration of a neglected subject." --Booklist
