";Writing Style: Fabulous! Information in these chapters is consistently presented in a clear, concise style. The reader is very much 'involved' in the material."; Deb Gural, Red River College ";I particularly appreciate Berk's inclusion of multicultural perspectives. It is important to help students, particularly those who are just beginning their professional preparation, to put what we know about young children and their development into a cultural context. This text does that masterfully with words AND with pictures. "; Nancy Freeman, University of South Carolina ";The thing that I am most impressed with is the examples the author uses. I found that often I had new insights in to child development issues even though I have been teaching and working in the field for years. These insights were so well thought out that I think that they would be very helpful students when learning the material. "; John Prange, Irvine Valley College ";As always, Berk provides a comprehensive discussion of developmental issues. What I appreciate is that the text provides good coverage of areas that are often neglected by other texts (especially applied developmental issues). "; Deborah Laible, Southern Methodist University ";The author's writing style is very engrossing. She is exceptionally accomplished in her knowledge of developmental psychology. I think her writing will be easy for my students to follow. "; Algea Harrison, Oakland University ";The writing level of this text is exemplary! The integration of research findings and "plain language" explanations allows the students to interact seamlessly with the text...; This is a wonderfully comprehensive and intelligent resource. "; Matthew DiCintio, Delaware County Community College ";I really enjoyed the writing style used by the author. I particularly liked the way that the story from the beginning of the chapter was woven throughout all the sections of each chapter. In addition, using the same characters in subsequent chapters really pulled together the links between developmental domains. "; Lynn Caruso, Seneca College "I think if a student feels the material he will know it. The value of the Ask Yourself sections is monumental." John Prange, Irvine Valley College
