Review: Encounters with Children: Pediatric Behavior and DevelopmentUser 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
