Bev Bos is one of my heroes. She is the director of the Roseville Community School in California and she has been teaching, leading workshops and otherwise transforming people who work with children for many years. Her life is about encouraging children to play, play, play. She sets up incredible environments for children - nothing is too elaborate (She has been known to 'build' forests, castles, and imported snowdrifts on her playground in California). She is the author of books on play, music, art and cooking with preschoolers (Together We're Better and Don't Move the Muffin Tins), and is considered by most to be the (very warm) mother of the process art movement. Check out her 'Good Stuff For Kids Workshop' in CA. It's a yowser!
