Throughout my eight years at Crowder College, Ive tried out different editions of books for various classes, but one book I have not altered is Berks Infants and Children. The information continues to strike a balance between breadth and depth, which is not an easy feat. I really enjoyed the read. I didn't catch myself reading the same sentence more than once, like I usually do. The chapter kept me curious and willing to keep reading.

Throughout my eight years at Crowder College, Ive tried out different editions of books for various classes, but one book I have not altered is Berks Infants and Children. The information continues to strike a balance between breadth and depth, which is not an easy feat.
I really enjoyed the read. I didn't catch myself reading the same sentence more than once, like I usually do. The chapter kept me curious and willing to keep reading. Berk has made teaching and learning about infants and children a joy with her engaging writing style, pulling me and students into the text. Thank you for a great textbook. I really liked the examples used to describe perceptual development. The explanations given, paired with the descriptions of the experiments used, helped me to understand the information in ways I wouldn't otherwise have be.
I have enthusiastically used Infants, Children, and Adolescents for over twenty years. Not only does Berk consistently include the most up-to-date research in each edition, but she presents it in a student-focused, engaging manner. As someone who has taught an extraordinarily diverse set of students in my career, I would recommend this text for any student interested in studying the dynamic process of child and adolescent development. I really enjoyed the Look and Listen feature embedded in the reading itself.
I find that relating information to real-life scenarios helps me not only to recall the information, but also aids in critical-thinking skills. My students have even commented on how well written the textbooks are and that they can really relate to the applications. I am most impressed with how this edition has been updated with more recent cultural information, and not just in the U.
I also like that it is even more cross-disciplinary. Berk combines superb scholarship, powerful writing, and a keen sense of organization to produce near perfection.
