"This is an excellent volume for students in the field of early childhood. The text takes a brief look at the young child, all inclusive, and is a must for teachers in training and in-service teachers."
"This is the most comprehensive child development text I have used to date. It is the only text that will be necessary to successfully teach a course in child development and theory. Application to theory is by far the best I have encountered in a textbook."
