Appropriate for Observation in Early Childhood courses.
One of the few books that successfully combines observation techniques with child development, this user-friendly text takes an applied approach that allows students to observe, record, and interpret child development by looking at particular behavior. Using the observation data to determine the level of a child's development, plans and activities are illustrated to show students how to help children strengthen specific areas of development.

"This text benefits from focused coverage on explaining specific, key areas of development knowledgeably and engagingly. Further, it provides many valuable, developmentally appropriate and well researched strategies for supporting healthy progress in practical, manageable terms.
I would consider adopting this text as a second reference for my advanced seminar--because it so clearly allows the reader to work through the basic foundations and principles of E.C.E. through the lens of observational assessment and to apply this knowledge in specific ways that benefit the growth of each individual child. I found it engaging, highly readable, and very practical and useful."
Louise Vlasic, Everett Community College
"The writing style is user friendly for the community college population for whom I teach. Students generally like this text and retain it for future reference."
