Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This updated edition of a popular guide to child development is not revised as much as supplemented. Much of the original text remains intact, with new information since the book was first published in 1973 added to the work in boxes, new sections, and an updated bibliography. Covering an infant's mental, physical, language, and social development from the first week of life to the 12th month, this guide describes a sequence of events, not a timetable. It also includes growth charts summarizing developmental milestones. Embracing fathers as well as mothers and supporting diverse family types, this handbook has potentially high appeal for contemporary parents. For all parenting collections-- Kathryn Hammell Carpenter, Univ. of Illinois, Chicago
