Overview

With How Children Develop, students get an up-to-date, topically-organized introduction to child development, presented by researchers and teachers who themselves are guiding the field into new directions. The authors emphasize fundamental principles, enduring themes, and important recent studies, avoiding excessive detail and making typically difficult topics easier to grasp. This thoroughly updated edition welcomes new co-author Jenny Saffran, and is accompanied by an expanded media package.
