“The time is right for this book. Each chapter is infused with classic and cutting-edge research. The writing is so clear that it makes the material highly accessible, even for readers without a background in child development. The author has thoughtfully crafted numerous vignettes that vividly illustrate major concepts and constructs. This book will be useful in all teacher education and early childhood education programs, and could be part of the curriculum in programs related to educational and developmental science.”

—Jeffrey Liew, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, Texas A&M University


“Denham has been instrumental to the field of emotional development. This comprehensive book reflects her significant contributions, while also incorporating the latest science. This is a 'must read' for scholars interested in understanding and contributing to the growing knowledge about young children's emotional development.”

—Susan E. Rivers, PhD, Executive Director and Chief Scientist, iThrive Games Foundation


“Denham is a notable developmental psychologist whose research on emotional competence in children is world renowned. This book is a wonderful resource for students, researchers, and educators alike. Written in an engaging and accessible manner, the book provides an overview of emotional competence, focusing on how theory can be applied in everyday settings.”

—Stacey N. Doan, PhD, Department of Psychological Science, Claremont McKenna College


“One challenge in the field of social–emotional learning (SEL) is the continued disagreement about what constitutes SEL and what doesn’t. Denham cuts through the noise to provide a clean and clear focus on the core emotional skills that children need.”

—Katherine Zinsser, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Illinois at Chicago


“Will become the 'go-to' text on emotional development in the toddler and preschool years. Denham provides the most comprehensive review of the research that I've seen. This is a valuable book for scholars and students interested in emotional development. Early childhood practitioners will be especially interested in the chapters on the influence of teachers and educational curricula.”

—Deborah Laible, PhD, Department of Psychology, Lehigh University
