"Unlike other child development texts, this text is devoted specifically to development from prebirth through age eight." "For child development courses that cover prebirth through age eight, this widely used text discusses major developmental theories as they relate to physical, social and emotional, and cognitive domains. The book contains extensive applications for those who teach and work with young children, making it particularly appropriate for early childhood education programs."--BOOK JACKET.
