How Children Develop is a tome of a textbook, with an incredibly appealing and structured design, making it both readable and easy to look things up in. It’s an extensive, interesting and comprehensive book about developmental psychology, and manages to cover all relevant topics in the field adequately.

This is book is, unlike some others on the subject, not structured chronologically, i.e. beginning at a child’s conception and growth, and ending as soon as it becomes an adult, but instead topica
As textbooks go, this one is engaging and I appreciated how it was set out with coloured subheadings and pictures to break up the text. It covers the field of developmental psychology fairly comprehensively, and the second edition includes a chapter on gender that wasn't part of my course, but I read it anyway (which I think is proof of how good a textbook is!). I only wish I'd had more than two weeks to read it in, because some of it was really interesting and I'd have liked to take my time.
Sehr informativ und auch gut erklärt. Doch das Lesen ist eher mühsam und man braucht deutlich länger als bei trivial Literatur. Somit ist es teilweise ganz schön frustrierend. Trotzdem wirklich gut.

I read this textbook for my Principles of Child Development class. It is pretty good as far as textbooks go, well written and full of supporting research.
Infant development bores me, but I read this thing through and through. Ridiculous.
