Overview

Unlike other child development texts, this text is devoted specifically to development from prebirth through age eight.

For child development courses that cover prebirth through age eight, this widely used text discusses major development theories as they relate to physical, psychosocial, and cognitive domains. The book contains extensive applications for those who will teach and work with young children, making it particularly appropriate for early childhood education programs.

  • Extensive real-life examples illustrate all the concepts in the book, helping students both to better understand the content and also to better see the practical applications of each developmental concept. Among these examples are two case studies that are carried throughout the book so that, while reading the book, students actually get to watch two children "grow up."
  • Contains extensive concrete applications for working with young children. A good example of this is the "Role of the Early Childhood Professional" feature at the end of each chapter.
  • Each chapter contains coverage of brain development and the neurobiological perspective.
