While I can't say that reading Piaget is the first thing I'd like to do on summer vacation, I must say I read a lot of this in airports, and it was REALLY interesting to see all of the parents interact with their children. I'm not an expert or anything on the ages of children, but it was a fun experiment to see how they interacted with their environment.

Something that turned me a bit off of this book was how repetitive it is. I suppose that I should be thankful for that, because it helps to reiterate points, and make sure that I understand something...but I felt like several of the chapters went into far too much depth in 'reviewing' previous stages. I really appreciate conciseness in textbooks, however I don't think textbook authors do. :)

This is a really great book for anyone interested in Piaget's stages of development...which is me, I suppose. :) Definitely worth a read if you are interested in education or working with children. ( )

Publisher description: This introduction to Jean Paiget's theory shows readers how children construct and acquire knowledge as it relates to current constructivist approaches to learning. Pieget's theory of Cognitive and Affective Development, sixth edition is well regarded as a work that preserves the historically important research done by Jean Piaget.
