An Adventure Play Documentary

A new documentary film about Adventure Play. 

Hello, Denver!

A special thanks to reporter Madeline Schroeder for sharing the ideas of adventure play with her 30,000 readers in the Front Porch Stapleton.  

I want to give credit to author Jay Griffiths whose idea I referenced when I spoke about children being free spirits, drawn to adventuresome characters like performers and cowboys. Jay writes about this in her incredible book Kith: The Riddle of the Childscape which I evangelize at every opportunity.  

In thinking about this idea, I'd like to add Harry Potter to the list of magic-infused, inspiring risk-takers.  Who else do children admire and mimic in their imaginative play?  Sports heroes... who else?
