Editorial Reviews

Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
"This rich, detailed, well referenced book is of interest in its entirety to graduate students, academics, and researchers. The busy clinician is likely to use it as a reference book, or dip into several chapters to find descriptions and theories about the astoundingly complex, rapid, and inter-related development in the toddler period."—Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
PsycCRITIQUES
"Instructors in advanced seminars in development should find this book an attractive text....This is an excellent book. The authors collectively make a convincing case for the importance of toddlerhood in social and emotional development. The book provides a theoretically rich description of these children and what is on their minds."—PsycCRITIQUES
Infant and Child Development
"This comprehensive book is highly recommended to graduate-level students, infant mental health professionals, and others from allied professions who seek to gain an in-depth understanding of social and emotional development during toddlerhood."—Infant and Child Development
Choice Reviews
"Will give the reader a new appreciation for toddler accomplishments....Valuable overall for understanding the 'terrible twos.'...Recommended. Uppder-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals."--Choice Reviews
From the Publisher
"A 'must read.' Brownell and Kopp have assembled an international 'who's who' of eminent researchers to review such topics as the emerging self-system, self-regulatory processes, altruism and empathy, pretend play and peer interactions, and social communication. Of special interest are contributions on early toddler atypicality. This would be an excellent text for graduate-level seminars in early social, emotional, and personality development."—Kenneth H. Rubin, PhD, Director, Center for Children, Relationships, and Culture, Department of Human Development, University of Maryland

"The emotional development of the toddler is virtually unknown territory in research. Yet toddlerhood is a time of rapid and crucial emotional transitions that lay the basis for personality, education, and moral development. This superb volume from world leaders in the field provides the reader with a thorough understanding of this vast gap in our knowledge about emotion in toddlers. Developmentalists, educators, clinicians, and pediatricians alike will want this volume as a reference source and for its many intellectually provocative contributions."—Joseph J. Campos, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

"Brownell and Kopp offer a unique window into a period of development that is frequently overlooked. It is clear from the range and depth of the chapters in this volume that many of the interlocking building blocks on which later development depends are emerging in the toddler years. Both experienced developmental scientists and students of development will benefit from this thorough and comprehensive examination of early emotion and social interaction processes."—Marion O’Brien, PhD, Director, Family Research Center, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

"This book brings together an impressive array of contributors to document and further our understanding of the rapid transitions that occur during the toddler years. It illuminates how the development of any particular socioemotional competency occurs within the context of codeveloping systems that interact over time. This is a book with a truly developmental perspective, in terms of both intrapersonal and interpersonal processes that shape behavior, feelings, and thought."—Joan Stevenson-Hinde, ScD, Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, UK

"This first comprehensive volume on socioemotional development during toddlerhood, with its eminent cast of internationally acclaimed contributors, is an extraordinary gift to the field. The book’s clarifying, holistic vision of the toddler years, cutting-edge scholarship, expansive coverage, and readability make it an indispensable treasure trove of knowledge for researchers, teachers of early childhood courses, graduate students desiring to deepen their understanding of this vital period of change, and clinicians focusing on early prevention and treatment of developmental problems. A superbly conceived and edited text!"—Laura E. Berk, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Illinois State University
