"Through its distinctive chronological presentation, The Development of Children portrays development as a process shaped by interacting biological, social, and psychological factors within the medium of culture. Incorporating a wealth of new research findings, the new edition provides an even stronger treatment of the interconnectedness among these spheres of development, making more evident the mutual interplay among the domains of biological development, cognitive growth, social understanding, and behavior."
