With a unique and engaging perspective, Child Development and Education, Fourth Edition is the only comprehensive child development text written specifically for educators. Because it is written by a developmentalist and an educational psychologist team, it provides the coverage and research found in more traditional child development texts but also then helps readers understand how to use this information as educators.

Unique features include: how the text illustrates key concepts by using children's and adolescents' schoolwork, artwork, and interview excerpts, as well as case studies and video examples authentic artifacts from children and adolescents; Observation Guidelines tables with educational applications; Development and Practice features with concrete strategies for facilitating children’s development and learning; and extensive coverage of diversity and its implications for helping all youngsters thrive.

New to the fourth edition, accompanying each text is an innovative online resource, MyEducationLab, containing “Building Teaching Skills” exercises, practice quizzes, homework and review exercises, videos for analysis, “Understanding Research” exercises (in which students read and interpret research articles), and supplementary readings.

All of the many features of the text and its abundant resources help readers actually see development, not simply read about it–preparing educators and those working with children and adolescents to apply development concepts to actual practice.

"I absolutely love the applied approach that is taken in this textbook and believe that this type of approach is optimal for preservice teachers in their understanding of child development...I find the artifacts to be beneficial to my students (especially teaching majors) by providing them with “evidence” in the developmental processes of children." -Kristen K. Williams, Ball State University
