To celebrate World Children’s Day (20 November 2022) Play Wales has launched a new storybook about children’s right to play.

Fun in the playground tells the story of one of the most important parts of the school day for many children – playtime.

This timely story reminds us beautifully about how all adults in children’s lives can either support or hinder the right to play. It captures the importance of supportive and tolerant adults and environments in helping children to realise their right to play. 

The book is for primary school children and their parents. It aims to support children to make sure they have the right to play at school.
