"Understanding the Preschooler" discusses some of the important aspects of social development in preschoolers as they go from the home environment into the school environment. Theoretical, observational, and anecdotal perspectives are integrated to offer connections between the youngsters' actions and reactions to different situations, as well as why and how they learn from these situations. The transition from home to preschool is not easy for them, but this book aids adults in understanding how youngsters make that transition.
