Learning begins in the first days of life. Scientists are now discovering how young children develop emotionally and intellectually, and are beginning to realize that from birth babies already know a staggering amount about the world around them. In the first book of its kind for a popular audience, three leading US scientists draw on twenty-five years of research in philosophy, psychology, computer science, linguistics and neuroscience to reveal what babies know and how they learn it.

Industry Reviews

A fascinating and insightful new text which parallels the young child's learning processes to those of a scientist. Essential information on Developmental theorists, such as Jean Piaget, is also included. The language is clear and concise, which helps to make this an accessible and useful guide to child psychology. (Kirkus UK)
