The objects children interact with and the spaces they inhabit have a significant and often overlooked effect on kids' development, behavior, and values. Do you choose wooden toys or plastic, or, increasingly, digital? What do youngsters lose when seesaws are deemed too dangerous and slides are engineered primarily for safety? In this eye-opening investigation, design expert Alexandra Lange reveals the surprising histories behind toys, classrooms, and playgrounds, and explores how certain kinds of homes and neighborhoods can help kids cultivate self-reliance. The Design of Childhood will change the way you view your children's world - and your own.
