Critical Praise

"With so much contemporary research activity in developmental psychology concentrating on infants, this book is timely and welcome. It should be most helpful to those instructors who are looking for a text to use in teaching an upper-level undergraduate course focusing on infant development or a first-year graduate-level survey course that provides broad coverage of the major topical areas including perceptual, motor, cognitive, and social development. A strong and balanced group of contributors does a first rate job of introducing students to the major issues, theoretical approaches, and empirical findings that students new to the study of infant development need to know." Paul C. Quinn, Professor of Psychology, University of Delaware
