Shows that "risk" is a valuable and pedagogical experience for children on the playground (and for the adults that share that experience with them) in preparation for the precarious world which children find beyond the playground.

Book News
Smith (education, Simon Fraser U., British Columbia) explains how parents and educators can become aware of the positive value of risk in children's lives and how youngsters can be challenged to take risks that are worth their while and help them mature with confidence and a strong sense of physical competence. In examples and questions he explores the place, silence, encounter, practice, and possibility of taking risks. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
