Cooper, Carol & others. Growing Up!: A Parent's Guide to Childhood. DK. Aug. 2008. c.320p. photogs. index. 9 CHILD REARING~The four contributing authors, who have credentials in pediatrics, clinical psychology, family medicine, and child care, succeed in making this work cohesive. The format--one chapter for each year--and the many color photographs make the text inviting. Highly recommended for public libraries. Background: Focusing on normal child development, Cooper, Kate Cronan, Tanya Byron, and Su Laurent describe in short paragraphs various aspects of a child's growth, health, skills, and emotional and social life. Even though major childhood hurdles are not described at length (e.g., potty training gets one paragraph, eating disorders one page), readers will get a sense of what to expect in the normal development of their child from age three to 14 and when to seek help if problems arise.--Maryse Breton OCPL, Syracuse, NY.
