Edition after edition, Berger’s highly praised, bestselling text opens students’ eyes to the ways children grow—and the ways that growth is investigated and interpreted by developmentalists. Staying true to the hallmarks that have defined Berger’s vision from the outset, the Eighth Edition again redefines excellence in a child development textbook, combining thoughtful interpretations of the latest science with new skill-building pedagogy and media tools that can revolutionize classroom and study time.
