Summary

  • Extensive real-life examples illustrate all the concepts in the book, helping students not only to better understand the content but also to better see the practical applications of each developmental concept. Among these examples are two case studies that are carried throughout the book so that, while reading the book, students actually get to watch two children "grow up."
  • Coverage of brain development and the neuro-biological perspective has been added to each chapter.
  • Extensive concrete applications for working with young children are included throughout. A good example of this is the "Role of the Early Childhood Professional" feature at the end of each chapter.
