Child Development: a skilful communicator, a competent learner

By Linda Pound (Practical Pre-School Books, £21)

Part of the A Unique Child series, this book focuses on child development and what it means today. It also looks at children as increasingly skilful communicators and competent learners. It explores nature and nurture, factors that support development and those that put it at risk, as well as the effects that emotional well-being and cultural influences have on children.

Each section includes case studies, clear colour photos, ideas for effective practice, insights into related research, and information on further reading and points for discussion.
