When did you last make time for play?Today, we don’t get nearly enough play in our lives. At school, kids are drilled on exams, while at home we’re all glued to our phones and screens. Former children’s laureate and bestselling author, Michael Rosen, is here to show us how to put this right – and why it matters so much for creativity, resilience and much more.

Packed with silliness, activities and prompts for creative indoor and outdoor play for all ages – with specially illustrated pages for everything from doodling to word play and after-dinner games.
