The Karnac Developmental Psychology Series
Each book in this series focuses on a particular age range of a child's development. The emphasis is on the description of the typical ways in which the child, at each of these stages, experiences himself in his world. As he develops, the child has different needs, abilities, and resources that underlie his interaction with parents, relatives, and the world at large. The objective is to illustrate how these unfolding characteristics of the child influence and are influenced by the people in his world. It is only careful and (usually) long-term observation that will allow one to identify elements in the infant's or child's behaviour that are likely to be part of his inborn personality.
