‘’A very different approach to child development to what is all ready in the market. Each chapter offers a different area of discussion that carries ideas for students projects. Although the book cannot be used as the main text for my class it fits perfectly with the general objectives of the course and provides general learning in the area of child development.’’-Dr Monica Shiakou,Social and Behavioural Sciences, European University Cyprus
