Child Development and Early Childhood Education.
Braga, Joseph L.; Braga, Laurie D.
This book is a guide to understanding the development and needs of the child from 0 to 5. There are three sections: General principles of learning and development; infant development and ways of caring for infants; and the preschool child, which concerns the young child's development and proposes teaching and developmental activities. An appendix lists information on choosing appropriate toys and materials for young children at different age and skill levels and recommends books and other resources related to child development and early childhood education. The sections concerned with the infant and the preschool child are divided according to age. The chapters on the child from 2 to 5 are then divided into sections according to areas of development including motor, language, cognitive and socioemotional. (ST)
