Children's Engagement In The World
Each culture provides a unique set of opportunities for the development of its children. For example, in the Western middle income home parents think that pretend play is an important activity and engage in this activity with their children. However, in some other cultures, parents may not think of pretend play as an appropriate activity to engage in with their children. This volume illustrates how cultures from Asia, Europe, the Americas and the Middle East are similar and different in providing opportunities of development for their children.
