Infants may seem to do little more than eat, sleep, and play. Yet behind this misleadingly simplistic fa├žade occurs an awe-inspiring process of development through which infants make sense of, and learn how to interact with the world around them.

Written by leading researchers in the field, Introduction to Infant Development, Second Edition, provides fascinating insight into the psychological development of infants. This new edition captures the latest research in the field, with new chapters on perceptual and cognitive development as well as memory development; the text also examines the role of gender, culture, and social class in infant development. The coverage of language development and motor development has also been revised to account for the latest research.
With enhanced pedagogical features throughout and a new Online Resource Center, Introduction to Infant Development is the ideal teaching and learning tool for those studying this intriguing field.
