    An easy read… The information is quite familiar, if you have read other materials on health, safety, development, and nutrition issues for young children. The enclosed CD-ROM provides real and practical examples of classroom settings, setup, and activities–based on age.

    Although this book is a textbook I purchased it as a new parent for use as a guide to my daughter’s development. While it does contain a great deal of useful information it doesn’t go into significant detail about any particular phase of development but rather gives an overview of each stage, hitting the highlights. Nonetheless I would buy it again and think it was a good investment.

    This book is an excellent study of children from birth to 12 years and is a prescribed text book for the Advanced Diploma in Childrens Services. It is a highly regarded text and the book met our expectations. It is one book we will keep as a reference in our library.

    This book gives the basic expectations for the ages specified. The book breaks the developmental expectations down by age, and covers most developmental expectations such as physical and cognitive and social. This is a good beginners book or one to reference.
