BLUEPRINT: How Our Childhood Makes Us Who We Are

LUCY MADDOX    Book Number: 88992    Product format: Paperback

Engagingly written and wide ranging, this excellent book explains child psychology and development in a compelling and accessible way, reassuring us that not everything is set in stone. Impeccably researched, it demonstrates the best evidence on how children's minds develop and it is written in a warm and accessible relaxed style. Have you ever wondered how your early life shaped you? From beginning to say simple words like 'Mama' and learning how to walk around unaided, to the first day of school and forming new friendships, everyone has been a child. The roots of our adult selves go right back to our first experiences. How we think, act and interact is influenced by our early years, yet most people don't know the key findings from the choicest child development studies that can give us insight into our adult selves. Weaving together cutting-edge research, chapters include Epigenetic Colouring-In, Learning to See, How to Train A Person, Thinking About Thinking, Learning Right from Wrong, What Siblings Do To Us, Playtime and Schooltime, Teenage Kicks and Who Am I? 312pp in large softback, diagrams.
