This review was written by a reception class teacher with an established play-based pedagogy

Inclusive Play is a resource for adults caring and educating young children, and emphasises how a need for good quality play is especially important to how children feel included within a setting. From the outset it creates a positive and not `in your face' attitude to the inclusion of all children in play environments, whether they are physically disabled using a wheelchair or have recently moved to a new school so are finding it difficult to feel included.

There is a strong element of listening to the children throughout the book, with many ideas in how to include the children's ideas and suggestions, thus giving the reader a sense of play being under the control of the children and that it is they who should lead and direct their experiences

Its focus is entirely play, and although it offers very good and easily manageable suggestions on how to create positive and productive play experiences for children it does not support a busy classroom practitioner who is striving to include more play in the classroom. Many of the activities and resource suggestions are aimed at very young children and it is sometimes difficult to see how these can be used with older children, in support of the National Curriculum
