I bought this book for a course and ended up reading MORE than what was on the reading assignments. The text is both informative and enjoyable to read as I was able to learn more than I could have imagined about how children's thought processes develop over different periods of time. The author does a great job, using a plethora of fun examples, of connecting to the reading audience who may not have a solid psychology background. Moreover, this book even makes a great guideline for parents who may have questions or interests in their child's thinking patterns and behaviors. I am very glad to have bought this book and plan on holding onto it until I have kids of my own someday (hopefully).

Was as stated; new. The book is great, I would recommend it as a good read for those interested in child development rather than a textbook. Arrived when they estimated it would. Will purchase from them again.

Great textbook for a cognitive development class.
I think I "wore" it because my instructor used it for everything.
Great textbook.
