The topically organized textbook How Children Develop has established itself as the go-to resource for educators and researchers seeking the most recent insights into child development. The authors, each of whom is a well-known scientist and educator, have earned this trust by presenting fundamental ideas and significant discoveries in a manner that is authoritative while simultaneously being immediately understandable and relevant to students. This has been accomplished through an integration of theory, cultural research, and applications that is unequaled.
The new edition has been thoroughly revised, and co-author Elizabeth Gershoff from The University of Texas at Austin has been added to the team. Ms. Gershoff brings a wealth of research and teaching experience to the topics pertaining to social and emotional development that are covered in the book. Additionally, it has a richer integration between the book and the interactive study features that are included in LaunchPad, making it more interactive than ever before.
