The Development of Children has long been acclaimed for its authoritative chronological exploration of how the lives of children are shaped by biological and cultural factors. In this thoroughly updated new edition, lead author Cynthia Lightfoot builds on the legacy of original authors Michael and Sheila Cole, offering a lively, engaging, and always accessible examination of child development as a process involving the whole child within multiple, mutually influencing contexts. Throughout, the emphasis is on how the interaction of biology and culture contributes both to the universal pathways of development shared by all children and to the diverse developmental patterns that unfold in the lives of individual children.
I liked the definitions on the sides of the pages and the content was easy to understand. The print was a good size, not too small.
I had to purchase this book for my child psych class. It’s easy to understand and well written. I would recommend it for anyone interested in child psych.
The book was even better than I expected. It was wrapped in plastic, in order and with a cover, so as to look just like the hard cover text book. Considering the significant price difference, it is totally getting this rather than the book. I just tied it together with ribbon and it is totally functional.
