Children go through distinct periods of development as they move from infants to young adults. During each stage multiple changes in the development of the brain are taking place. Ages and stages is a term used to broadly outline key periods in the human development timeline. Stages include physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional. Brave Books offers a number of titles that cover these exciting yet challenging years.
