How Children Develop and Video Tool Kit for Human Development

How Children Develop and Video Tool Kit for Human Development

In its first edition, this highly anticipated textbook for the topically-organized child development course provided a fresh, non-encyclopedic approach, offering the latest, straight-from-the-research understanding of child development without overwhelming the student with inessential detail.

The new edition brings those hallmark features forward, again providing a thoroughly contemporary, streamlined introduction to the study of child development that emphasizes fundamental principles, enduring themes, and important recent studies.  Student-friendly pedagogy, a new chapter on gender, and an enhanced media and supplements package further enrich this accessible, engaging, and informative text.

    I teach child psychology with this book, at a college. The book is topically arranged (not chronologically arranged), and, overall, the writing is excellent. Two chapters (Ch 12: The Family) and Ch. 13 (Peers) are not taught in my course; instead, students do chapter tests on those two for extra credit. The Instructor’s Test Bank by Jill Saxon is mediocre, but was greatly improved for the Second Edition. The Second Edition is 98% identical to the First Edition, so I continue to teach with the First Edition. The three authors’ coordination of topics was moderately successful, but the topic of “social referencing” is freshly described in at least three separate chapters, suggesting that authors did not realize that this term was presented elsewhere in the book, in addition to their own presentation. I continue to buy these books to give to students in the class as prizes for high test performance, or for most-improved test performance. SB

    I got this text for a developmental psychology class at the University of Chicago and it has far surpassed my expectations. It is very well organized, easy to read, and covers a wealth of interesting information. The text never gets boring and explains all of its topics in depth. There are reviews of relevant research studies in each section which explain how the ideas in the text were discovered. The text also covers physical development to an extent which helps to understand childrens’ psychological development. I have taken two other developmental psychology classes and this is by far the best text for developmental psychology i have read. I highly recommend this book!
