Book #28 of 2019 is Theories of Childhood, by Carol Mooney. At long last, a book that succintly describes some of the different theories of early child development, without a lot of prescriptive advice. It let me build some mental models of how children develop so that I have a foundation for evaluating other how-to articles and such. It's a short book and doesn't have too much detail but is a good starting point, and I can probably now find other books that build on the different theories in more detail.

The only question I have is why the author chose these particular 5 theories and if there any other ones that might be good to know as well.
