A child's odyssey: child and adolescent development
Organized chronologically, A CHILD'S ODYSSEY provides a strong foundation in child development, helping students understand and appreciate not only the science of development but also the child's unique, subjective experiences. Written by a master teacher, the text revolves around the theme of the journey-development is an odyssey, a journey with many paths and many choices-an adventure unique to every child. This text also provides a unique view of how the discipline will continue to evolve as our lives and the lives of our children change. Examples, humor, and applications are used liberally.
