A keeper September 7, 2010
One of the best textbooks I've purchased, I actually kept this one rather than sell it back. It is a really good reference book. I refer to it often, now that I have a niece and nephew who are toddlers, it 's a nice book to check to find out what types of activities are appropriate for different levels of development, and so forth.
