Publication Date :

Corresponding to the organization of most child development textbooks, each chapter of this text contains 5-6 personal narratives and each narrative covers a different concept, issue, or topic within a given age period. Students see theory and research come alive through dynamic and insightful first-person accounts about timely issues; become engaged in critical thinking about gender, multi-cultural, ethical, theoretical, and research issues; and gain exposure to complex life events and ethical dilemmas.
