Summary

The Gold Standard in Chlld Development Textbooks Laura E. Berk Chlld Development "Writing Style: fabulous! Information in these chapters is consistently presented in a clear, concise style. The reader is very much ls"involvedrs" in the material." DEBORAH GURAL, RED RIVER COLLEGE "Berkrs"s emphasis on culture is excellent and I think superior to most other development books. She includes a wide variety of interesting, relevant, and thorough cultural examples in boxes and throughout the chapters." BARBARA SIMON, MIDLANDS TECH "This is an extremely comprehensive and well written chapter on emotional development. I found the presentation clear and concise, and an appropriate blend of theoretical background and detailed descriptions of research results." ROBERT COPLAN, CARLETON UNIVERSITY "I think that Berk Child Development is an excellent text. It is up-to-date and comprehensive. At the same time, it is highly readable and very attractive." REBECCA BIGLER, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AUSTIN "Laura Berkrs"s texts are distinctive because they are research-focused and extraordinarily well-written. I also deeply appreciate the integrity of her thinking and presentation of issues: she does not dodge or unduly simplify difficult developmental problems or scientific questions." ROSS THOMPSON, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA DAVIS "We (Psychology Faculty at Brigham Young University) have consistently concluded that Dr. Berkrs"s child development text is the most accurate, coherent, comprehensive, and insightful offering on the market. Her careful, systematic approach to organizing the knowledge base in the field serves our students well." CRAIG HART, BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY "I particularly appreciate Berkrs"s inclusion of multicultural perspectives. It is important to help students, particularly those who are just beginning their professional preparation, to put what we know about young children and their development into a cultural context. This text does that masterfully with words AND with pictures." NANCY FREEMAN, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA For related titles and support materials, visit our online catalog at www.ablongman.com
