"This book is a modern take on the study of infancy. It brings together some of the most up-to-date research in easy-to-understand language that the students can use to see the relevance of this field, not just for them as parents (which is what most of them think of when they take my class), but also for other practitioners and policymakers."
"I appreciate how respectful and inclusive these authors are towards diversity and variability in development. They really contextualize developmental pathways and explain clearly how various aspects of development (e.g., perception, postural development, and learning) are inextricably intertwined. But they also do tease apart those aspect of each developmental area that can be specified (e.g., the various building blocks of language). I enjoyed many of their research and case examples, and was surprised, at times, by research that I had not seen yet! I think you would like this text."
"Infancy, First Edition is the first textbook I've read that I actually really enjoyed! The authors are incredible mom-scientists who use personal stories about their own kiddos throughout the book as examples. I learned so much and I STRONGLY recommend this textbook for those interested in infant development!!"
Fantastic , well set out book, detailing infant development , highly recommended to learners and used in lessons
Text is easy to read and provides marvelous real world examples from the authors' own infants. The text also does a very good job of discussing research findings on social and cultural influences on development.
