This is an easy read, a fascinating journey of discovery and I will use this book for my own purposes and it is already on our reading list to use with students.
'David Whitebread introduces us to a rich array of recent research into early child development, showing how children master the ability to regulate their own learning when adults respect and value their play. His writing models the balance of emotional warmth and cognitive challenge which best supports self regulated learning' Rod Parker-Rees, Associate Professor in Early Childhood StudiesUniversity of Plymouth
A great book which was very obviously written from a personal professional perspective which makes it engaging as well as informative for the reader.
Sound coverage of cognitive development appropriate to new module commencing Sept 2016
This text book links well for the developmental units with clear information on many of the developmental psychologists, enabling students to link children's learning to theory, often a challenge faced by many students in their first year on a HND programme. The links to observations is useful, as is the reference to parenting styles which students discover during both development units and working with families.
Strongly suggest students purchase this book to support the Child Development module
This is a very interesting book which my students will find extremely helpful
Very informative textbook
This book is really useful and will be utilsed in many modules on the Foundation Degree in Early Years. It gives students a clear background knowledge.
With so many Psychology books being the size of loaf of bread it is nice to hold one which doesn't make my arm want to drop off. While this is a think book don't be fooled as it covered exactly what is needed for child development. If your looking to understand it in terms of PIES then you are in luck with this book.
This text is short and succinct so provides an excellent supplementary text to other books on children's learning and development. It is well compiled and an accessible read that can be used as a reference to understand developmental theory.
Good for first year students with or without previous knowledge. Content structured and logically scaffolded.
The parts about self-regulation in young children are very useful for my course on self-regulated learning. The text is interesting for students in educational science and I did not find such a good summary on self-regulation in that age anywhere else.
Ideal for the students, an easy to read manual about development in the first years.
This book goes through all the different types of development and would make an appropriate read for first year undergraduate students. There is a nice mix of visuals and images which is especially helpful when exploring the differing theorist experiments. Case studies and activities allow individuals to apply their theoretical knowledge base to practical situations.
Valuable resource for students studying the CACHE L3 and submitting the Research task. Includes new research findings and how they relate to practice.
An excellent introduction to early childhood development and suitable for early years students and practitioners.
This book is easy to read and understand for my differentiated learners.
Will supplement unit three and five and give different perspectives of physchology. A good book with some interesting viewpoints. Need to encourage our students to read rather than rely on Internet.
