Loose Parts

Loose Parts : Inspiring Play in Young Children

Loose parts are natural or synthetic found, bought, or upcycled materials-acorns, hardware, stones, aluminium foil, fabric scraps, for example-that children can move, manipulate, control, and change within their play. Loose parts are alluring and beautiful. They capture children's curiosity, give free reign to their imagination, and encourage creativity. With more than 550 color photographs of many kinds of loose parts in real early childhood settings, classroom stories, and a dynamic overview, this book provides inspiration and information about the ways loose parts support open-ended learning, enhance play, and empower children. With loose parts, the possibilities are endless.
