Description

Although a number of books discuss the physical and cognitive abilities of the toddler, Alicia F.

Although there are any number of books that cover the physical and cognitive abilities of the toddler, Lieberman's is the first to offer an in-depth examination of the varied and intense emotional life of children from ages one to three.
