I cannot say for other devices, but if you are renting this for an iPhone or iPad no page numbers will appear when reading! This makes it impossible to use it in APA or MLA citations which the publisher, Kindle, and Amazon really should warn you about! I, like most college students, don't have the extra $50 to waste on a purchase that isn't even functional. I am very disappointed! To add to it there is apparently no way to return a digital order... I have always been very satisfied with Amazon's backing of all of it's sellers and felt safe ordering through this site, but not anymore.

This book is a little dry but does contain very pertinent information regarding the social development of young children. Very informational. One of the best elements of the book is at the end of each chapter; it gives very specific lists of things to do, as well as a list of pitfalls to avoid. Good reminders to enhance the social development of your students.
