By Leaps and Bounds: A Parents' Guide to Measuring Child Development Ages 3 to 5

Gary C. Roper, Author, C. Gary Roper, Author, Judith H. Demarest, Author Henry Holt & Company $12.95 (192p) ISBN 978-0-8050-0347-5
To help parents decode the jargon of counselors, psychologists, doctors and teachers who test their children, Roper and Demarest provide this useful and readable armory of information about the range of human development from ages two and a half to five and a half. Included are special tests designed for home use that measure a child's motor skills, visual and auditory perception, language and cognitive development and personality. Though the authors are careful to give instructions for gentle, unpressured testing, one hopes this book won't be misused by parents who may push their boundless leapers through the natural stages of growth.
