This is a student-centered, applied text, providing a chronologically organized introduction to the main age stages, research, and theories of child/adolescent development. Ideal for courses which train future childcare workers, teachers, social workers and counselors, applied health professionals, and especially future parents. The pedagogical plan is simplified to reduce distracting "clutter," containing photos and illustrations limited to only those that directly support key concepts. The student-centered tone is further amplified when considering the vast array of teaching and learning supplements that support it and the low price with which it is offered, typically $15 - $20 less than any other text on the market.
