Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Infancy, First Edition!

Lisa M. Oakes, Vanessa Lobue and Marianella Casasola's Infancy: The Development of the Whole Child unites historically important and cutting-edge theories and research to illustrate the development of the whole child from birth to age three. Topically organized and written in a conversational tone, the text illustrates the interconnected nature of development through links within its bio-psycho-social coverage. Through its inclusive approach, students see individual similarities and differences in development as a function of factors such as culture, language experience, parenting style, and socioeconomic status. Stories from the authors' own experiences with infants highlight connections between research and parenting, social policy, and everyday contexts, effectively bringing the topics to life for students.
