A master teacher of the very young (Wally's Stories, Boys and Girls: Superheroes in the Doll Corner takes us into their special world and reaffirms the value of play. In their own words, disconnected and allusiveMollie says, ""Red is my favorite blue''we follow these nursery tots as they gradually find a pathway from the richness of make-believe to the regulated world typified by building blocks and doll corners. Through their story telling and fantasy play, the children, fortunate to be under the guidance of a nonintrusive teacher, grow. The children's talk, by which they develop awareness of who they are, is captivating, allowing us to observe them in a unique way. Paley is affiliated with the Laboratory School of the University of Chicago. (May)
