Help students understand how culture impacts development - and why it matters.
Through current research and examples from around the world, Arnett/Maynard’s Child Development provides students with a more accurate and practical understanding of how development works in the real world. Whether they travel the globe or remain in their home towns, students will benefit from being able to think culturally about human development and our culturally diverse and globalized world. New U.S. and international videos, shot in several countries, allow students to observe similarities and differences in human development across cultures.
MyDevelopmentLab is an integral part of the Arnett/Maynard program. Key learning applications include a personalized study plan, MyDevelopmentLab Video Series, and MyVirtualChild.

“Well-Written and concepts are well explained. Cultural Approach is evident throughout.”
-Dr Wallace Smith, Union County College
“The writing style is engaging, especially in the opening stories and all concepts are clearly explained.”
-Colleen Fawcett, Palm Beach State College
“The writing style is engaging. It is straightforward, factual and descriptive without being overwhelming in the volume of concepts trying to be addressed. Sections connect to each other, using supporting features to link one to another. The author has gone out of the way to indicate where related concepts were discussed in previous chapters.”
-Carrie Dale, Eastern Illinois University
“Child Development: A Cultural Approach provides the student with an overview of the development of children in middle childhood while comparing the development to children from other cultures and countries. The text is easy to read, making it easy for students to stay engaged and understand the content.”
-April Grace, Madisonville Community Colege
“I would seriously consider this book for my developmental psychology course which has as its focus birth through adolescence. This book appears to provide the element of culture which is absent from other text books.”
-Randolph Manning, Suffolk County Community College
