Having two degrees in Psychology, not much of this was new to me. Although the content was relevant to future educators, I though the writing itself was too technical for an introductory textbook. Okay for grad school but overall not as engaging as this subject has the potential to be.
Canadian Reader
A well-written and very useful resource for educators. The authors write conversationally and naturally and provide many practical suggestions. I haven't read the entire text, but dip in frequently for understanding of particular issues and problems.

Recommends it for: parents, educators
Gotta wonder how many educators in the system have child development as a requirement. After reading this,its clear that a differentiated approach is needed in all classrooms.
