Summary

Helen Bee continues to actively engage students with the ninth edition of The Developing Child, which contains her characteristic informal, personal, narrative writing style; students report that they enjoy reading the text! The text, presenting a balance between theory, research, and practical application, allows students to understand how theory and research are interconnected and how they apply to everyday life. The text is not limited to classical studies only, as Bee presents current thinking and research to introduce students to recent trends and topics in child development. The ninth edition continues to have Real World, Research Report, and Cultures and Contexts boxes that allow students to explore research and applications. A new organizational shift is the placement of the chapter on intelligence to after the discussion of cognitive structures, so that the discussion of developmental changes precedes the section on individual differences. Bee has also expanded and updated the Cultures and Contexts boxes and has built on the emphasis on cultural variations introduced in the seventh and eighth editions. Introduce yourself to the practical applications that are in Helen Bee's The Developing Child, Ninth Edition! Book jacket.
