Developmentally Appropriate Practice: Curriculum and Development in Early Education, 3E is a thoughtful and comprehensive text that is now even more effective with the addition of several new features and enhanced content. In the first section, developmentally appropriate practice is discussed and explored, including an in-depth, extended section on the theory and research of play. Subsequent sections address domains such as physical, social/emotional, and cognitive/language. The coverage of these important environments is comprehensive and individually addresses appropriate practice for all early childhood age groups. The fifth section moves into a discussion of making changes for the teachers and how to gain support for those changes. Well-known curriculum approaches are also explored in-depth, allowing the student to understand how these approaches fit into the principles of developmentally appropriate practice. Some new features include "What Would You Do?" and "Think About It" sections that encourage further thought and discussion, as well as current reference and reading suggestions to allow the student to continue the learning process independently.

Currently, she writes a regular column titled "Grandma Says" for Growing Child.Review:
The text goes into great depth about each of the target age groups needs for physical, social/emotional, and cognitive/language environments.
The play section is well developed and provides excellent examples and theory
Gestwicki's DAP is an excellent early childhood text. I think it is better than the text I currently use.
