Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 267. Reviews the book, Child development by Greta G. Fein (1978). This introductory-level text on children is organized around the major periods in childhood. One of the parts deals with heredity, prenatal development, and birth. The next part contains four chapters on infancy. One of the other parts deals with early childhood and has chapters on “Thought, Language and Communication,” “Exploration and Play,” and “Social Development”. The text appears to meet its goals of being comprehensive, contemporary, and readable. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
