Children and Their Development, 2CE provides a solid, research-oriented overview of child-development science. Using a topical approach, the text focuses on research and theory while still presenting the material in a cohesive and accessible student package. It uses fundamental developmental issues as a foundation for integrating studies and for demonstrating how complementary research methods work together. It also demonstrates that the results of child-development research can be used to enhance the lives of children and their families.
This edition is supported by the dynamic integration of MyDevelopmentLab throughout each chapter. The pedagogy focuses on integrated special topics, review questions, and boxes, all of which are designed to enhance student learning.
