The videos, self—assessments and interactive exercises are very powerful tools.” – Nurun N. Begum, East Stroudsburg University “I think [ Child Development and Education] does a great job bridging the gaps between theory and real life application. It gives great information, while also giving practical applications... All of the etext features are very user friendly, very important to the reader, and do so much for helping the re
