About the Book

This highly readable text provides an exceptionally clear overview of the whole field of child development, from birth to adolescence. the 2-12 age range is strongly emphasised. All the main areas of child development are fully covered:

* perception and understanding

* cognitive skills

* play and language

* personality

* social relationships

The author draws upon the studies from a wide range of disciplines and shows how these contribute to our understanding of child development, clearly demonstrating how the information can be applied at home and school.


`This is the most wide-ranging and up-to-date account that I have seen of our knowledge of child development.' - Peter Bryant, Times Higher Education Supplement
