Playing with a child is an involved process — you just don’t realize it. 

But peel back the layers and you see the building blocks for emotional stability being laid and verbal and motor skills being expanded. Add reading into the mix and the learning opportunities grow. 

Put this all together into a safe place like a public library, and the potential for it becoming a movement starts to happen.
