I agree that the play is a work of children. The characters in the play are acting in the capacity of young children. They are attempting to bring out the scenario in the real world of children. The evidence of the play is brought out in the statement that the play cannot be convincing or interesting as the children. It took the characters a great deal of practice to do what was, well, child’s play in the nursery (Paley, 2005).
Address language, conversation, and stories and their role in play, according to Paley
The language use in the play is child language. It is less sensible as it picks on anything randomly and gives a narration which has no direction in itself. The language uses sound devises such as “Ahzz! Water, water! “Gulp, gulp, gulp, come on, drink it!” The language is the child version way of communication. Similarly, the conversation lacks the connection to be one contribution discussion. Every child does her things independently but talking to each other simultaneously at the same time. Each child in the play is pursuing a fantasy but seem to be aware of the other child contribution in the play (Layne, 2007).
Select one anecdote from the book, and discuss why it holds meaning for you in the context of the concept of play
One anecdote from the book I select is the victory story of Vijay. It is an interesting one because of its tragedy and the victory. The plane crash into O’Hare, and into the Westin tall building. The plane was fixed by the mechanics and people were fixed by the doctors. The building was not fixed because it was on fire. The victory repeats when the people go home in her story (Cooper, 2009).
Compare two children mentioned in the book, and discuss how their situation represents the concept of the importance of the play
The two children mentions in the play are Kostos and Vijay. The Vijay story is about a plane that crash into an O’Hare, and into the Westin tall building. In his story, the tragedy was the plane crashing into the building (Bjorklund, & Blasi, 2011). The plane was damage, the building burns and the people were injured. There was a victory on his story. There were fixers who help to fix the damages. The fixers are mechanics, doctors and firemen (Rodney, 2009).
Address the view of the concept of fantacy and imagination, as presented by by paley, with supporting details
The concept of fantasy is brought out in the story of Kostos and Vijay. The plane crashing into an O’Hare, and into the Westin tall building was deadly tragedy and the narrator cannot be talking about the fixing, that could happen in the real set up. It is a fantasy that there were survivors who they were treated and discharge to go home (O'Loughlin, 2009).
Describe the concept, example, or situation in this book which was most meaningful to you
The concept which is meaningful to me in the book is the story of Vijay tragedy and victory story. The plane that crash into an O’Hare, and into the Westin tall building (Bjorklund, 2011). The plane was damage, the building burns and the people were injured. There was a victory on her story. There were fixers who help to fix the damages. The fixers are mechanics, doctors and firemen (Staples, & Cochran, 2008).
