Interview at Ohdeedoh

August 19, 2011

Jackie Boucher from Ohdeedoh asked me some thought-provoking questions about playful learning vs. free play, making the most of small spaces, and lessons I have learned through the years.

Oh, and you have to see her son’s heart map—arteries and all! It makes me think that we should should start some sort of virtual heart map gallery :-)

You can read more of our conversation and about Jackie’s experience of the book over at Ohdeedoh.
