I enjoyed the first half of this book because I really like learning about infancy and toddlers, however I was bored with the adolescence section simply because I read another textbook called Adolescence and I felt like it was the same thing just not so in depth. It was a simple read, yes I read the whole book. It was good and helped with my class on children's learning

Not very well written. I've read textbooks with way more information, that also explain things better and with more detail. This was more like skimming the surface of all child-psych topics, yet not explaining anything.

For a school book, it was fun to read.
Just changing the year of the book, I dont want it to count on my reading meter as I didnt read the whole book from cover to cover.
