Format: Hardcover
This book should be called the bible of early child development. I could not put it down because it brings clarity to the great confusion that exist between policy makers, scientist,and how we care for children. The whole nature vs. nurture, phylogeny vs ontogeny, evolution and preformation...it just goes on and on and answers so many questions that you literally cannot put it down. Contextually, it's filled with beautifully written unbiased text that promote social and scientific discourse, yet it begs us to look at ourselves and question who we are as a specie, why do we think, and how do gas molecules create this interesting specie we call human, and so many other theories that you leave with a sense of belonging and longing....

I recommend that every early child care teacher read this book. Don't waste your time on those fly by night books where the author or publication company disguise it as "teaching you about early child development" because they are driven my economic gains and definitely not knowledge. We, as humans are an interesting specie and somewhere in the development of our gene (perhaps because of environment and gene mutation), we realized that we could rule and dominate others. This book brings to light the reality of how one class of people can dominate and enslave millions of humans by making them believe they are inferior...definitely an eye opener...
