Summary

This book presents the "big picture" of modern child development. While it reflects the complexities of the subject, it is also designed to help readers understand, appreciate, and learn the fundamental concepts. Several modules within each chapter address the major topics and contain one of four features. These four features include Spotlight on Research; Cultural Perspectives; Real Children; and Making Children's Lives Better. Boxes that summarize key points from the surrounding text is provided on nearly half the pages in the book. The book also suggests additional, outside resources.
