Her findings have identified why and how children learn best through play, especially the importance of learning when embedded in a playful context. Dr. Golinkoff is author of twelve books and many professional articles. She is frequently quoted in newspapers and magazines as a scientific advocate for children and has appeared on Good Morning America and many morning television shows and hundreds of radio programs across the country.
