Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent easy 'how to' for those curious about Montessori As a first-look into montessori methods it provides easy to read and easy to follow 'directions' for trying to incorporate Montessori into your daily lives and what it might be able to do for your child - and your whole household!! It is broken down well and is not overly verbose as some other books are - easily accessible, even for dads :) Lots of pictures and short explanations that get to the heart of the issues they are trying to address. Even a bunch of instructions for making Montessori 'tools' for learning at home. If you aren't sure about it, take a quick look at the store and you will need to take it home!
