"Child" explores the world of young children aged from 2 to 5 as they emerge from toddlerdom and start out on the long road to independence. These early years are a time when their capacity for learning and sheer exuberance for life are unparalleled and this insightful guide contains a wealth of information about all aspects of development. Age-by-stage profiles describe growth patterns, social and emotional behavior, physical and cognitive skills. Gestures and body language are interpreted to guide the reader to a better understanding of personality and what young children are thinking and feeling. Enchanting photographs capture typical actions and reactions to everyday experiences.
Follows the publication of Baby by Hamlyn in 2008, a book which generated a huge amount of media interest. Desmond Morris is an internationally renowned zoologist, author and broadcaster. Hardback format and beautiful photography make this an ideal gift book.
