9780130257000: The Young Child: Development from Prebirth through Age Eight (3rd Edition)

This book discusses major early childhood development theories as they relate to physical, psychosocial, and cognitive domains. It focuses not only on child development from pre-birth through age eight, but upon the roles and responsibilities of adults who care for and teach young children. An ecological perspective looks at family, community, school, and society as a whole, and offers readers a broad view of the many possible influences on human growth and development. Chapter topics include the where, when, and how of early childhood study and assessment; and the physical, motor, psychosocial, cognitive, language, and literacy development of infants and young children. For those who will teach and work with young children, and particularly appropriate for early childhood education programs.

Product Description:

For Child Development courses in Early Childhood Education that cover ages 0-8. For child development courses that cover prebirth through age eight, this widely used text discusses major developmental theories as they relate to physical, psychosocial, and cognitive domains. The book contains extensive applications for those who will teach and work with young children, making it particularly appropriate for early childhood and early elementary education programs.

From the Publisher:

This popular text has a two-fold perspective that concentrates on both children's development and students' development as early education professionals. The authors examine children's development within an ecological context that includes the family, the school community, and society as a whole...exploring major development theories as they relate to all aspects of the young child's growth. In addition, they emphasize the 'development' of adult early childhood professionals and the impact of these adults on the children with whom they work. With this unique dual perspective, students receive more background on children's development than can be found in most curriculum and development texts, as well as more material on their chosen profession than is available from child psychology texts.
