"Instructors who wish to develop in their students a close understanding of the programmatic findings of an elite group of today's developmental scholars and active contributors to the contemporary literature on this select group of current topics in developmental psychology will find Child Psychology a very rewarding collection"

Marc Bornstein, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

"Child Psychology offers an outstanding cast of developmentalists who build a launching pad to the 21st century upon the four foundation keystones of development...in an explicit effort to transform child psychology from a descriptive discipline to an explanatory science."

Prof. Hiram E. Fitzgerald, Michigan State University
