Publisher's Summary

Dr. Montessori devoted her life to the teaching and understanding children. This remarkable work is one of the greatest guides and insights in children's way of thinking for all teachers and parents. Maria Montessori brought new life to the field in the late 19th and early 20th century. In her own words: "If we give children 'the means of existence', the struggle for it disappears, and a vigorous expansion of life takes its place. The aim is an inner one, namely that the child train himself to observe; that he be led to make comparisons between objects, to form judgments, to reason and to decide; and it is in the indefinite repetition of this exercise of attention and of intelligence that a real development ensues."

Why is the reader a man?

I love this book, because it's such a great, simple, concise overview of the Montessori Method. However, I was surprised and slightly offended that a man was chosen to do the reading. Dr Montessori was a strong woman, a pioneer in the world of education. It seems only just that a woman should read her words.
