   Great Reference
I studied for my M. Ed. in graduate school and used a PDF version of this book. I ordered the book because I needed a quick reference when I started my business. It's still a great resource. Changes in child's development are reflected in the updates.
   Not for me
This is a basic book. I think these observations were taken from one day of watching a class of different ages. The author states in the book that 7- year- olds may have handwriting problems. The book is an introduction to observations the author has made over the years. I don't discount the authors experience, but this book is not for me. A more in- depth explanation of the stages of development is what I prefer.
   cliff notes
I paid a lot for the book, but it's very simple and basic, and each page only has 5 or 10 bullet points and a few sentences.
   Quick read primer for childhood development
This is a basic book for understanding learning goals. I was able to paint a pretty vivid picture of the diverse experiences students have from grade to grade when I used it to create personas for my company. I'm curious how many students made up the sample for each grade, as there seemed to be a lot of generalizations and the author described a strange yo- yo effect between 6 and 9. I trust that the author is smarter than I am and that the information in this book is what I would expect. I recommend it for parents and teachers to get a cognitive development 101 crash course.
   Excellent Read
This book was purchased by me after I started substitute teaching. This book gave great insight to the child's mind and development at different stages of adolescence, not only as a Sub but also as a mom.
   ESSENTIAL FOR: Parents Teachers Caregivers
This easy to read and understand book is perfect for parents, teachers, or anyone who interacts with children. Understanding the needs of children during different stages of development is important for effective relationships. We are teachers. Over the years, we have purchased every edition of this book and gifted it to many other teachers and parents. We have a lot of teacher books, but this is the only one I keep handy.
   Must Have for Educators
Over my ten years of teaching, I have referenced this book more than any other. It's important for teachers to understand adolescent development. It is easy to reference these books.
   Great for Elementary Teachers
The age and grade levels for elementary school are given. I teach Special Ed and am not always sure what a typically developing peer of the same age is capable of, and this is a great resource for figuring out where the most growth is needed.
   Presented simply and clearly!
In a very helpful way, this breaks down what to expect from each age. It's easy to reference because it's well- organized. A teacher would love this book. Yardsticks can be purchased to give out to parents for what to expect at each grade level, referencing the 1-2 years of development encapsulated in one grade.
