During the second half of the twentieth century, Ann Brown was one of the world’s premier researchers into the cognitive development of young children. Sponsored by the Spencer Foundation, this edited festschrift honors her work and memory by bringing together a collection of original studies that extend many of the theories and themes of Brown’s earlier work. Most of the contributors are researchers who once worked with Brown.
