More than any other textbook for the topically organized child development course, How Children Develop takes students to the forefront of the field, with an author team of highly accomplished researchers and educators who themselves are guiding the study of child development into new directions.

Now the latest edition of this acclaimed book has been adapted for topically organized courses in Canada by Susan Graham of the University of Calgary. As always, the book emphasizes fundamental principles, enduring themes, and important recent studies, avoiding excessive detail and making typically difficult topics easier to grasp. Canadian students will find a text that speaks more directly to their lives, with information and examples in every chapter specific to Canada, as well as references throughout to important studies conducted in Canada and/or by Canadian researchers. The new photo program reflects the diversity of Canada’s peoples, using Canadian figures and images to illustrate key ideas. Spelling, measurements, and presentations of numbers have all been changed to reflect Canadian usage.
