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.
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.

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.
