Play Today?

You say you love your children,

And are concerned they learn today?

So am I – that’s why I’m providing

a variety of kinds of play.


You’re asking me the value

Of blocks and other such play?

Your children are solving problems.

They will use that skill every day.


You asking what’s the value

Of having your children play?

Your daughter’s creating a tower;

She may be a builder someday.


You’re saying you don’t want your son

To play in that “sissy” way?

He’s learning to cuddle a doll;

He may be a father someday.


You’re questioning the interest centers;

They just look like useless play?

Your children are making choices.

They’ll be on their own someday.


You’re worried your children aren’t learning.

And later they’ll have to pay?

They’re learning a pattern for learning;

for they’ll be learners always.
