Review Text

A conscientious month-by-month catalogue of developmental minutiae, supplementing the Gesell-Ilg type profiles with frequent reference to recent research findings, charts listing motor. language, mental and social patterns for each level, and advice on handling and adjusting to the various behavioral changes and stages. The authors devote considerable attention to the newborn (who is no longer believed to be the blind, unindividualized blob once described by scientists), avoid establishing averages (those in use elsewhere having been computed several decades ago) and emphasize throughout that the book describes a sequence, not a timetable. Mainly for mothers. (Kirkus Reviews)
