A child’s first year is one of remarkable growth. For example, in that short time, they learns to crawl, to take pride in themselves, and to say simple words.

Caregivers can enhance their positive role in promoting this growth with a thorough understanding of child development as presented in this book. This book is one of three easy-to-read, practical guides, each focusing on the unique issues for the specific age group covered and are adapted from the recently updated textbook, The Young Child, a standard in academic programs.

Understanding Infant Development explains:

the impact and long-term effects of biology and environment on an infant’s brain development
how infants learn
important theories of infant development
how early experiences lay the groundwork for an infant’s development in language and thinking
the effects of nurturing on an infant’s emotional development and stability in later life
milestones and windows of opportunity in an infant’s development

Each book in the series includes developmental milestones and stages, information on the caregiver’s role in each developmental domain, and vignettes representing developmental challenges and successes. Written for child care providers in any setting, each book provides a comprehensive overview of the most relevant theories and research on child development.
