Helen Bee has been writing for over 70 years now. Her writing reflects her knowledge, understanding and the skills she has in expressing complex issues. She writes with humour and makes the content comfortable to read. The use of real life stories enables the reader to enjoy and easily understand a broad and complicated subject.
Having used this book for my own work, I now strongly reccommend it to students of child development, many of whom have expressed their gratefulness at finding such a valuable text that they could work with.
This book for myself has gone beyond the boundaries of studying. It is not unusual to find myself reading snippets for pleasure and I have recently refered to this book to help me understand a 'phase' that a family member has been having!
This book will be used for a long time.
i bought it for university and it has proved to be very helpful
