Partners in Play: Homemade Toys for Toddlers, tells how to make simple playthings for toddlers that are fun, stimulating, and challenging without being frustrating. Written by Rita Anderson and Linda C. Neumann, this book provides step-by-step instructions for making over 40 toys and offers tips for playing with each toy.
Partners in Play serves as a guide to help parents as well as teachers and daycare providers enrich playtime with one- and two-year-olds. It describes the kind of play a child can enjoy as a toddler and how an adult can enhance the play experience. The book suggests ways to play with toys that encourage a toddler's language development, promote muscle control and coordination, stimulate senses, and sharpen reasoning and problem-solving abilities all while having a good time. Also included are suggestions for varying toys as a toddler's abilities and attention span grow.
The toys described in Partners in Play are grouped into 10 categories according to their characteristics or the skills they require. A sampling of categories is pounding toys, blocks, puzzles, pegboard toys, and a toddler favorite, messy play activities. The book discusses ways to make homemade toys appealing, durable, and safe, and includes photographs to show how the finished toys should look. Also included are recommendations for materials, tools, and supplies to use in toymaking, many of them items found around the house.
The toys featured in this book are well tested. Co-author and early childhood educator Rita Anderson developed and refined them for use in the parent/child learn-through-play classes she developed and taught for over 10 years in the Chicago area.

Ms. Anderson states, "In writing this book, I hope to enrich playtime for children and for adults. Parents are a young child's first and best teachers, and I want to help parents recognize their potential as teachers as well as play partners. I want to emphasize that teaching your child doesn't require a degree in education or an extreme amount of time. Teaching can happen all day long with materials from around the house. To busy teachers, early intervention specialists, and daycare providers, I want to offer ideas for enriching the learning environment using simple toys and activities that require a minimal investment of time, effort, and money."From the Back Cover:
