The World of Children Joan Littlefield Cook and Greg Cook From the very first chapter, this chronologically organized child development text engages students in the development process by exposing them to real people facing real world child development challenges. The World of Children encourages students to think critically about issues and situations from multiple perspectives, helping them connect the science and practice of child development in a way that can positively change their lives. "I, personally, have never seen a text that does such a good job in critical thinking. There are very few times students have to just give the information back without having to apply it. This is one of the things I like best about this text." Cathy Pollock, Asheville Buncombe Technical Community College "The implementation of critical thinking is quite excellent in this text. Most of it seems to be induced by the pedagogical tools used by the authors, particularly the Thinking Back notes, As You Study, and the Perspective and Social Policy features." Mark P. Rittman, Cuyahoga Community College "I like the positive approach used when discussing ethnic and cultural differences." Steven A. Dennis, Brigham Young University, Idaho "This text is beautifully written and engaging. It is not pedantic and it maintains student interest. In particular, "Your Perspective Notes" and the vignettes are inspiring." Lila Snow, Los Angeles Pierce College
