Young children learn best through two kinds of experiences: dramatic play and interaction with their peers-learning through action precedes learning through language or thought. In The Dramatic Difference, Victoria Brown and Sarah Pleydell introduce drama as a bridge between children's natural propensity for active learning and the demands of the preschool and kindergarten curriculum.
