In an era of vast electronic media, this research sets out to establish the contemporary value of thoughtfully developed playbooks,being hard-copy children’s books with additional features such as flaps, textural elements, built-in puzzles and so on, in childhood development and learning. It seeks to determine whether such playbooks continue to have a role in education and learning or whether they have been superseded by electronic media such as interactive digital books. The following chapters consider various formats in terms of their suitability for specific developmental and learning outcomes for young children.
