This is the classic book on children's physical, mental and emotional development, from conception to the age of eighteen.

Written by two leading specialists in the field, a renowned child psychologist and an experienced developmental researcher, Your Child's Development incorporates the latest findings in genetics, physiology, language, psychology and education. In more than 500 pages of direct, lucid, non-technical text, supplemented by over 260 photographs, diagrams and charts, it sets forth all that parents need to know (plus much that is simply amusing and interesting) about the way a child develops.

I read this book for a bio book report and i enjoyed it a lot. Although its slightly old the best ways of raising a child hasn't changed much. It also included many facts about the development of infants which I found interesting.
