Gripping stories of children at home, school and in the therapist's office using make believe to grapple with real-life issues from entertaining kindergarten to the death of a sibling. In an age when toys come from television shows and dress-up means Disney costumes, Linn lays out the inextricable links between play, creativity and health, showing why society should protect children from corporations that aim to limit their imaginations.
