A poem about play

A little poem for parents to read or for practitioners to show to their customers!
The value of play by Leila P. Fagg
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 everyday

You're asking what's the value
Of having your children play?
Your duaghters building 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 centres
They just look like useless play?
Your children are making choices
They'll be on their own one day

You're worried your children arent learning
And later they'll have to pay?
They're learning a pattern for learning
For they'll be learners always
