Every child is born into a community, a society with a culture, in which he or she will live, grow and develop. Cultures lead to differences in children's development, but equally important, culture is an essential component of every child's psychological development.

Child Development takes a chronological approach, from prenatal development to adolescence, in which social, cognitive, emotional and physical aspects of development are interwoven. Martin Packer integrates cross-cultural examples from different parts of the world to illustrate how culture plays a constitutive role in children's development.

This book includes an in-depth discussion of human evolution, the history of language and the human lifespan, as well as the theoretical perspectives of scientific research on children's development.

This textbook is essential reading for undergraduate students taking an introductory course in child development or developmental psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Finally, a developmental textbook that portrays the ubiquitous role of culture in the developing child." -- Christine M. Weinkauff
"Packer has written a culturally informed and philosophically sophisticated text. It is essential reading!" -- Robert B. Faux
A truly valuable reference book covering most important aspects of (human and) child development with a particular emphasis on the cultural perspective. Each chapter has clear learning objectives and framing questions at the beginning, and in the end, a brief conclusion section highlighting most important aspects covered in the chapter. A great resource for anyone studying or interested in psychology. -- Tamara Rakic
"Clever, scholarly and approachable explanations of the importance of culture and society in a child's development. This book makes an important contribution for both students and researchers." -- Marek Tesar
