Summary: As a best-selling, chronologically organized child development text, Berk Infants, Children, and Adolescents is relied upon in classrooms worldwide for its clear, engaging writing style and its commitment to examining the latest theory and research. Berk takes an integrated approach to presenting development in the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social domains; emphasizes the complex interchange between biology and environment; and provides exceptional attention ...show more to culture.

The most recent scholarship in the field is presented in a manageable and relevant way. Students are drawn in by Berks signature storytelling style and learn beside the texts "characters" who experience real issues in development, including physical, cognitive, and peer challenges, as well as parenting and educational concerns. Students will recognize many topics of profound significance in todays world, such as poverty, welfare reform, health care, child-care quality, physical punishment, the obesity epidemic, and bilingual education, and learn what researchers have found about their impact on children.

In the Fifth Edition, Infants, Children, and Adolescents has an even stronger emphasis on the interplay between biology and environment. Several reviewers of the fifth edition judge the coverage of brain and motor development to be the best in any child development text on the market today. Many aspects of the childs environment are considered, including home, extended family, school, neighborhood, community, social policy, and cultural influences. With unparalleled cross-cultural references, Infants, Children, and Adolescents, Fifth Edition is an indispensable resource for anyone caring for children in an increasingly global community.

Throughout the Fifth Edition, Berk creates even stronger connections between developmental domains, and takes more opportunities to ask students to "Connect" topics to those in previous chapters. Berk also helps students connect their learning to their personal or professional areas of interest. Her voice comes through when speaking directly to students about issues they will face in their future pursuits as parents, educators, social workers, health care providers, and others who work to secure the welfare of children.
