Illuminating the emotional experience of toddlers and preschoolers, this important volume presents a fresh perspective on early child development. What do two- to five-year-olds understand about their own and other people's feelings? What do children learn about emotions from parents, other caregivers, siblings, and peers? How do changes in other areas of development, like cognition, fuel emotional skills? Incorporating case studies, original findings, and an extensive review of the literature, Denham explores the links between emotions, socialization, and behavior in the very young. The book also sheds light on clinical issues related to delayed emotional development and reviews a range of assessment instruments and ameliorative interventions.

"This comprehensive book captures the delight, discovery, and drama of the emotional world of the developing child....Integrating scholarly material with real-life examples, the book will be useful to students, educators, and others concerned with the subjective and social worlds children live in and share with us. It provides an impressive integration and unified consideration of findings from related developmental areas."
-Janet Strayer, PhD, Simon Fraser University

"Engaging and well-written...Academicians will appreciate the thorough, scholarly treatment. The foundation provided for understanding and treating children at risk for emotional problems will be of special interest to clinicians. Filled with examples based on everyday scenarios, the analysis of the early origins of the self-conscious emotions of pride, shame, guilt, embarrassment, and lying is particularly fascinating. In sum, this is an exceptional volume."
-E. Mark Cummings, PhD, University of Notre Dame

"Exciting and comprehensive....Fills an important void in developmental psychology."
-Mark T. Greenberg, PhD, Pennsylvania State University

"An interesting and helpful book....I found [it] immediately useful, and I expect that will also be true for other researchers, as well as parents and teachers."
-Carroll E. Izard, PhD, University of Delaware
