Review quote

'For anyone whose curriculum dictates that they need to learn what a 6 month old can usually do, or that they need to be able to play with a 12 month old and work out whether the child is developmentally on track, this is the book for them...The third edition is even better than those that came before.' - Archives of Disease in Childhood 'Based on the pioneering work of Mary Sheridan, From Birth to Five Years has become a classic guide to the developmental progress of preschool children. It is widely recognised as an invaluable resource for parents and professionals training or working in health, education and social care.' - Living and Loving 'This updated edition of a classic text from pediatric specialists Sheridan (a researcher for 40-plus years) and the London-based Sharma (pediatrician), and Cockerill (speech and language therapist) is a valuable reference in child development...a practical work suitable for undergraduates interested in child development, early childhood education, communication disorders, or medicine...Highly recommended.' - Choice
