it did not have a hard cover which was very easy to wrinkle up the pages in my backpack My first thought of this book was that it has almost no illustrations, and if there were any, they were black and white. Also, it did not have a hard cover which was very easy to wrinkle up the pages in my backpack. It was a good choice for me to just rent the book instead of buying one.

Well written and detailed Bought as a textbook. Was very helpful in my Developmental Psychology class. Went into detail about the development of children and how they come to think about things and act the way they do. Ended up getting an A in the class, so the book is definitely helpful and well written.
