Editorial Reviews

Shawn Edwinson

"Test Your Knowledge is a good introduction to inform students of what they do not know; thereby reinforcing their need to READ the chapter! "

Glenna S. Gustafson

"I appreciate this feature [Test Your Knowledge] because it sets the stage for learning and activates prior knowledge. "

Aaliyah Baker

"Very engaging and effective. Attention grabber. The questions/your answers stick with you as you read the chapter allowing one to either confirm or change their thinking."

Amy M. Claridge

"I really like the learning goals and the end of chapter summaries. With so much content, it is helpful to have a reminder of the most important points from the chapter at the end."

Tara M. Stoppa

"I really appreciated the Active Learning Exercises! Wow. These are probably the best that I have seen for these. I also appreciated the focus on careers, as well as being a good consumer of research…. I was especially impressed with the Test Your Knowledge openers. I could envision myself using these for each chapter as a discussion starter in class. "

Dawn N. Hicks Tafari

"The Active Learning sections are particularly engaging. I believe students will really enjoy doing these on their own, and it is also something that I can facilitate in the classroom…. The Test Your Knowledge section is also a favorite of mine. This is an engaging and useful tool to help students focus their learning…My students would enjoy a text that encourages such deeper and effective interaction – less passive reading – and pushes critical thinking."

Psychology Learning and Teaching - Dalia Gefen

In their preface, authors Laura Levine and Joyce Munsch emphasize the need for a child development book that enables students to create meaningful learning experiences. This text has succeeded in achieving their goal.”



“The many strengths of this text attest to the success of Levine and Munsch in creating a comprehensive and well-written overview of child development.”

—Dalia Gefen, Iona College

Nicole Surething

My overall assessment of this text book is that it is well done…it engages the students in the material but [is] also very cost effective. I especially enjoyed how thorough the book was but that it was not too research focused or boring to the reader. In addition, having access to the Extended Journey in Research and SAGE [journal] articles is a major strength.”

—Nicole Surething, Christopher Newport University

Dawn Witt

This is an extremely well written text. The authors can be commended for the depth and scope of the content . . . easily accessible to students.”

—Dawn Witt, California State University-Channel Islands

Sharon Carter

The strengths of this text are the topics presented…, the reading level of the text, the resources in the chapters, pictures, charts, Active Learning, Research, etc. I would adopt the [second] edition of the text for all of the above.”

—Sharon Carter, Davidson County Community College-Lexington

Kelly Cotter

I really like this book. I love all of the resources, the book itself is clear and provides a lot of information, and I will definitely adopt it again.”

—Kelly Cotter, California State University-Sacramento

Dan Nyaronga

The book is great! I would recommend it to anyone teaching a course in Child and Adolescent Development.”

—Dan Nyaronga, SUNY Empire State College-Saratoga

Charles Dickel

Levine and Munsch have made an excellent contribution to the texts available to those of us who teach child and adolescent development – both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I was excited to use the text when I reviewed it for potential adoption, and after this second review, I am even more excited. I do not see any key weaknesses but do see the many strengths…”

—Charles Dickel, Creighton University

Claire Novosad
