Wisdom from Peter Gray

By on

Read Time: 1 minute

Dr. Peter Gray is one of Let Grow’s illustrious co-founders, a member of our Board of Directors, and the inspiration of our Let Grow Play Club. He’s a brilliant author and speaker and we wanted to have some of his most popular resources and support of Let Grow available here.

His book makes it so clear why kids need play: Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life  

We recommend this TEDx talk to every parent and educator we talk to, especially if they don’t have time to read his book

His blog on Psychology Today has a number of articles pertinent to our mission, and here are just a few:

His paper, “Let Children Play!”: Connecting Evolutionary Psychology and Creativity

His paper in the American Journal of Play, ” The Decline of Play and the Rise of Psychopathology in Children and Adolescents”
