Growing Minds Reviews


'Engaging...a very clear and enthusiastic introduction to what is a complex and ever-changing field, offering important new material that has been lacking in many previous texts...Accessible to students with no prior knowledge of child development' - Dr Sarah Paterson, Neurocognitive Development Unit, Institute of Child Health, London '...a valuable introduction to cognitive development. It is very readable, which helps if you are a struggling undergraduate trying to balance research and a hectic social life, or indeed if you are a 24/7 housewife studying for that all important child care qualification to get you back into the world of work.' - Nigel Ash, Education Review
