The Developing Child : Children Solving Problems


In this short, clearly written book, Thornton synthesizes literature in post-Piagetian research to consider the development of children's problem solving capacities. She suggests that there are multiple variables that contribute to the ease with which children solve problems and the sophistication of the strategies they employ. (Harvard Educational Review )

The synopsis of research since the 1970s provided here constitutes a valid challenge to Piaget's theory that the development of logical skills is fundamental to the ability to solve problems. (Readings )

[There is] much of value about Thornton's book. In particular, not only does it meet the aim of providing an accessible outline of a major strand of contemporary thinking, but it does so in a manner likely to inspire considerable enthusiasm and interest in its readers.
--A. Tolmie, (British Journal of Developmental Psychology )
