I can honestly say that I learned quite a bit about the Montessori approach at home. However, it seems too unrealistic at times, not really considering the ups and downs of child rearing. The real life examples given picture the child and family's life as always joyful and peaceful. The tone is condescending most of the time and it even tells you that you are "a bad mother if", which is unrespectful and totally subjective. I found it to be a stressful read at times. I think a lot can be done to make this book purely informational with realistic expectations and guidelines. The narrator doesn't really help with this either. I couldn't find similar books for this age group though, so give it a try!

This is a great book with examples to start with your baby right out of the womb. You gain an understanding of Montessorial teaching as a whole.
BUT if you already have children and didn’t start teaching them the Montessorial way you will immediately feel guilty on how much you did wrong and because you missed out on opportunities from the start that you cannot get back
your children cannot achieve their fullest capacity to be productive citizens in society.
And the narrator sounds like a robot.
