4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Bubbie on September 11, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although I liked the format of the material, it lacks The depth of a college-level text which is what I was seeking. The material on non-traditional families lacks applicability in today's world. For example, there are no suggestions for activities that support diversity. In each area, the subject matter stops short of providing the reader with any concrete, tangible evidence-based strategies for meeting the needs of healthy children. One would hope that even a basic child-care, home-based, provider is working with a more thorough background in child development. For example, the activities for helping children achieve their maximum potential are almost nonexistent. How much more useful it might have been to have a highlighted box with the toys, crafts and read-aloud books, etc. that stimulate age-appropriate behavior. In addition, a greater emphasis on outdoor activities, in light of the current trend in children's weight patterns, would have made the text more current. There is also a need to address activities essential for the urban child growing up in poverty, especially. Perhaps a revised edition will include some of these important topics as they relate to the book's organization & themes.

I was pleasantly surprised by the softcover option for this textbook. It was pre-punched and easy to insert into a binder. I love being able to pull out one chapter at a time for reading.
