Combining research and practice, this text creates a comprehensive look at a child's development, from conception through adolescence. A topical organization is featured which reinforces core concepts and research that is balanced with applications centred around real-life situations. Also included is a chapter which reviews atypical development; helpful boxes that amplify chapter material; and a summary chapter which reviews child development by age rather than by topic. The seventh edition emphasizes the role of culture in development, thereby offering a wide-ranging, contemporary assessment of child development.

The Developing Child, Tenth Edition, is a top-selling topical child development book known for its personal, conversational writing style; balanced coverage of both theory and application; and strong emphasis on culture. Helen Bee is a prominent author and researcher whose successful books on development, and whose devotion to these fields, has earned her a national reputation. Denise Boyd of Houston Community College System joins Helen Bee in refreshing this popular, longstanding text.
