About the Author
Maria Montessori, born in Italy in 1870, dedicated her life to learning how best to educate children--particularly the poorest, most challenged children--during their vulnerable beginnings. Today her legacy is evident worldwide. She died in the Netherlands in 1952.
John Chattin-McNichols, Ph.D., is the President of the American Montessori Society and Professor of Education at Seattle University. He is the author and editor of several books on Montessori education.

Review this product
Top international reviews
Between the continuum concept and this, (oh and how to talk so little kids will listen) hopefully my daughter has some hope! ; )
But seriously, without Montessori to back me up, most people think i'm mad that i don't want little one doing sny 'fantasy' till at least age 6 etc. Montessori explains why that is, after all, a good idea.
Practical life skills all the way.
I like that she backs up the 'no praise not reward' system with children.
Low quality print
However, I regret the bad quality of the ink (some words almost fade away) and many mistakes of printing make its reading difficult.
Very difficult to read since the words are too small.
Don't really want to continue to read it.
