The Pips of Child Life: The Middle Years of Play Programs in Hospitals offers a glimpse into the middle years play activities and programs in hospitals (1900-1970’s) and the women who led the way. This text reveals the core of play programs relative to the social historical contexts prior to the formation of play as a healthcare profession eventually known as child life.

The eight chapters included in this collection were developed as stories composed to share knowledge from the existing records and memories of the middle years play programs in North America.
