Overview

Essential reading for parents and social policymakers, this book draws on the latest brain research and social science findings to offer important advice on infant and toddler care.
“This book offers policymakers essential information about child development and the need for a continuum of supports to both children and their families. I highly recommend it for all concerned about the healthy development of our children.”—Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children’s Defense Fund
“A masterfully woven tapestry of early childhood policy and science. Ed Zigler and his colleagues connect the dots between what we know from science into what we should do for our nation’s infants, toddlers, and their families.”—Matthew E. Melmed, Executive Director, Zero To Three: National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families
"A wonderful document of all the research and thinking about the first three years of a child and family’s development. I recommend it as a resource for all of us who are interested in outreach and intervention for families with small children."—T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.
