Young children love books about kids their age doing things they like to do. Let’s Play at the Playground is a wonderful example of how the combination of simple text and beautiful action photographs can portray a wonderful message. Playing is fun!

Now more than ever it is important to encourage kids to get out and play and this book does that.  “By the time I finish reading this book at our library’s Circle Time, the kids are all revved up to run outside and play. It’s thrilling to see how this book inspires kids to get up and get moving.” 

Karen MacPherson                                                                                                                                                               Children’s & Youth Services Coordinator,                                                                                                                                           Takoma Park Maryland Library

Author, Pat Rumbaugh is a leading proponent of the importance of play in all of our lives. She was a physical education teacher at the Washington International School for more than 25 years. In 2009 the Washington post named her “All-Met Tennis Coach of the Year.
