EARLY CHILDHOOD: Behavior and Learning

Email this review


The present book is a revision of The Psychology of Early Childhood, published in 1958, a revision ""made irresistible by the new and promising directions study of young children's behavior has taken during the past nine years."" These include a clearer definition of biological bases of behavior through the study of gene-enzyme relationships, perinatal, infant and animal research, studies in socialization, etc. Dr. Landreth has been praised for her assimilation of the scholarly and the practical, in particular for professional application, again considered here with suggestions on educational strategies. There are also the children's ""antedotes"" from direct work and association with them.
