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 every day.
You're asking what's the value
Of having you children play?
Your daughters creating a tower;
She may be a builder some day.
You're saying you don't want your son
To play in the “sissy” way?
He's learning to cuddle a doll;
He may be a father some day.
You're questioning the interest centers;
They just look like useless play?
Your children are making choices;
They'll be on their own some day.
You're worried your children aren't learning;
And later they'll have to pay?
They're learning a pattern for learning;
For they'll be learners always.
