Covering infant development, from conception through the first years of life, this text takes an interdisciplinary perspective. A topical format is used, and this edition features comprehensive information on each area of importance in infant development. Charles Snow aims to take a balanced overview of theory, research and practical application, and strongly emphasizes the interrelationships between various developmental domains and the importance of the whole infant.
