Here are a few things you'll learn with this audiobook:

  • why it is essential to accept the child for what he is;
  • why Montessori activities are stimulating for the child;
  • how to create your Montessori activities;
  • much more...

Good ideas

Lots of good ideas to that end are put forth. It is so incredible and moving and truly clears up a large number of the grievous misguided judgments individuals have about Montessori education. A must peruse for any individual who needs to find out about Montessori.

Best book

The book is packed with meaty anecdotes and the best of what critics and educators have had to say on the subject of school reform. It held my attention from the first eight word opening sentence to the very last page. This is the best book on the Montessori method that I've found.

Good information

I really enjoy the Montessori method and it helped me prepare for my baby. It is a little overwhelming, but I think it is more for being a first time mother with so much information.

Content is great

It really has helped me remain so calm when our little toddler begins to have a toddler melt down. These are very few in occurrence and I think the advice this book shares contributes to her well being.

Excellent book

It is an excellent companion for the above books as it gives a personal testimonial to the concepts in the books and shows how the method is as relevant and far reaching today as it was one.

A terrible audiobook

All the reviews seem to have been written by the same person with the same bizarre writing style on the same days with separate '1 review' accounts. As for the book, the narration is bad and writing rambling and hard to follow. Don't bother.

Self helpful

There has a lot of information about Montessori. I love this book. For the price on Amazon I got it for, it can't be beat. The book is a nice size for little hands and so beautiful. The letters have a texture to them to allow for sensory learning.

Nice book

It seems you don't have to even be particularly interested in the Montessori method in order to find this book valuable, but it's a plus if you do indeed want to learn more about Montessori. Beautiful book design but also brilliant content.

Practical

I tried to remind myself that setting up a safe prepared environment is more important than a perfect one and that observing and respecting my child as a whole human is the best way to start.
