There is nothing so fascinating as the mysterious and miraculous process of child development. The articles in this book serve to make this process seem a little less mysterious, but no less miraculous. This book is designed to introduce readers to some of the most interesting and important current research in the field of child development as well as society in general. The author has carefully selected timely topics that are important to the study of child development, but are also subjects of general societal concern. As a result of careful market research, the recent articles featured have been chosen for their lucid writing style and accessibility. Each reading is accompanied by helpful introductions that explain technical details and place the work in context. If appropriate, the introduction may mention follow-up research conducted since the article's reprinting. Child psychologists, developmental scientists and psychologists, educators, and parents.
