Authors: W.B. Mawson (University of Auckland, New Zealand) 
Book Description:
Young children's collaborative play is a little-researched and poorly understood area of childhood education. This solidly research-based book throws new light on a fascinating world of children's play and relationships in early childhood settings. A key feature of the book is the weight given to children's voices through the use of in-depth accounts of actual collaborative play episodes in two distinctive early childhood settings. The detailed, full field notes provide a substantial body of evidence of a little known area of children’s lives in early childhood settings, allowing the reader to become a participant in the children's play.
