Helping students make connections between science and practice

 

The World of Children helps students connect the science and the practice of child development in a way that can positively change lives. The third edition features an active learning system that exposes students to real people facing real world child development challenges. It encourages readers to think critically about issues from multiple perspectives. The World of Children is a chronological child development text.

 

MyPsychLab is available with World of Children, 3e. Through MyPsychLab, students have access to MyVirtualChild, an interactive web-based simulation that allows students to raise a child from birth to age 18 and monitor the effects of their parenting decisions over time.

  • Personalize Learning — The new MyPsychLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructions achieve their goals.
  • Improve Critical Thinking —Prompts throughout each chapter jumpstart readers’ critical thinking process.
  • Engage Students — Real-life cases encourage students apply what they are learning. Also, students can raise a child through MyVirtualChild.
