"The Developing Child, Tenth Edition," is a top-selling topical child development book known for its personal, conversational writing style; balanced coverage of both theory and application; and strong emphasis on culture. Helen Bee is a prominent author and researcher whose successful books on development, and whose devotion to these fields, has earned her a national reputation. Denise Boyd of Houston Community College System joins Helen Bee in refreshing this popular, longstanding text.

" The writing style is superb, making concepts and ideas clear with a minimum of language and a maximum of understanding." -Saundra K. Ciccarelli, Gulf Coast Community College

" Years ago, I used Helen Bee' s text to develop my original lectures on physical growth. I continue to find her coverage of physical development one of the best." -Pamela Ludemann, Framingham State College

" Bee really connects with my students." -Philip J. Mohan, University of Idaho

" I had three students read material over the same subject matter from three different texts. All three selected Helen Bee' s as the most readable." -Therese Morrow, Illinois Central College
