Drawing heavily on infancy research conducted over the past 25 years, Fogel provides a scientifically based account of infant development. Chronologically organized, the text covers similar topics in each chapter, including motor and physical development, perceptual and cognitive development, and social and language development. Fogel also stresses the practical applications of the theories and research presented through in-text features including Family and Society, Co-regulating with Baby, and Awareness Through Movement?.
