Dramatic play is one of the most effective ways to teach a young child to read, write, and understand the world.

    It also has many uses beyond kids.

    The book is a collection of practical tips on how to write dramatic play, from the simplest ways to use the story to the most complex ideas to try out on your kids.

    In this episode of the podcast, I’m going to walk you through some of the biggest questions about the art of dramatic play and share my favorite examples to get your creative juices flowing.

    We’ll be taking a look at how to start creating your own dramatic play with no prior creative or writing skills, and we’ll also discuss how to use that creativity to help create the perfect story.

    It’s a fascinating episode and I hope you find it as useful as I did.

    Happy writing!
