Easy to read yet thorough up-to-date insight into how children learn and develop, with lots of links and valuable information. Useful for professionals but also for parents looking for a deeper understanding, with wise suggestions about how to manage sensitive situations and support children, taking their views into consideration.
This was a key text on the child development module for the BSc Social Work degree (along with "The Child`s World"). It is an excellent book, detailed and informative and helped me considerably with my assignment. Well worth buying for anyone studying to be a social worker.
