Summary

VOYAGES, a full-color, chronologically organized child and adolescent development text, covers the cognitive, physical, social and emotional changes that occur in an individual's life, from the pre-natal period through adolescence. In every chapter, Rathus communicates the joy inherent in the observation of child and adolescent development--without neglecting the scientific rigor of the field. Rathus' discussion of challenging issues that relate to the influence of ethnicity and gender on development enhance this discussion, ensuring that students will come away from their reading with a deeper understanding of human diversity. Key study-enhancing hallmarks of Rathus' texts, such as the PQ4R pedagogical method and a humorous, anecdotal writing style, are present in each chapter of the text. The in-chapter pedagogy also includes several distinctive boxed features: "Developing in the New Millennium," "Developing in a World of Diversity" and "A Closer Look". A comprehensive package of print and electronic ancillaries accompanies the text.
