Around the world, children can be seen playing with sticks and rocks.  They offer experiences rich in creativity, imagination and dramatic play.  Combined with other loose parts found in nature such as pinecones, flowers and acorn caps and these open-ended materials also foster the development of sensory awareness, cognitive skills such as counting, seriation, predicting and comparison, language growth, problem solving and collaboration.  Used indoors or out of doors, this Curious Collection is designed to provide countless opportunities to incorporate loose parts in daily play.  Beth Ferry's delightful book is a fun read for children and adults alike.  It can also be used to provoke discussions about friendship and bullying for older children engaged with the materials in this Collection.
