Organized according to the child's age, this informative text takes you from the neonatal visit and newborn exam all the way through the late adolescent years.

Includes developmental concept chapters that are arranged according to the child's age, with more attention given to younger children when much of their development occurs. Covers timely topics of social and family conditions such as single-parent and blended families, and reactions to stress. Includes many resources available to parents, including many found on the Internet. Incorporates children's art throughout, for use in clinical practice.

User Review  - Elizabeth Blake - Goodreads

This is my favorite child development book. I refer to it often in my practice as a pediatric NP. I've bought 2 editions. The first actually has nicer graphics. The second has more and updated information. Read full review

A very informative, readable book on child development. The tables listing developmental milestones by age are very helpful, as are the 'red flag' boxes. Read full review
