9780534210007, titled "Children's Thinking: Developmental Function and Individual Differences" | Wadsworth Pub Co, December 1, 1994, cover price $58.95 | About this edition: Consistent with the direction the field of developmental psychology is heading towards (an expanded vision that gives greater attention to individual differences and cultural variation), Bjorklunds extensively revised new edition offers a unique theme: individual differences in cognition can be most profitably understood by a consideration of developmental function.

Child study is a very complex field. Human beings, and children, specifically, are very complex beings. Consequently, simple answers and solutions to problems are very often just that: too simple. This text presents principles and methods for studying children in the varied contexts in which they live and function. These theories and methods can be used as a kind of "tool kit" for application in a variety of situations by the people who work with children such as researchers, parents, educators, pediatricians, nurses, social workers, and child psychologists, to name but a few. In short, the book is written for people interested in how to examine and describe children as well as those interested in creating educational environments for children.
