Montessori Materials Make a Difference

"Numerous books have been written and dedicated to Maria Montessori's teachings and life's work. Her method and materials are used in thousands of public, private, and Montessori schools around the world."

"I've starred some of the books in the reference list to help readers learn more about Montessori education and Maria's philosophy. For new parents with child in arms, I recommend starting with Montessori from the Start: The Child at Home, from Birth to Age Three and How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way.Another excellent book of Montessori teachings with opportunities to purchase materials is The Joyful Child: Birth to Three Years."

"We packed up my Montessori materials and our four children and headed north to the land of the midnight sun, excited with plans to start my own Montessori school. I didn't know about the dark, sunless event of winter. In Juneau, I had a lesson in cabin fever."

"Raising five children was a crazy, joyful, roller-coaster time of my life that kept me going morning to night. I didn't have an opportunity to open my Montessori school but used my Montessori materials for our children at home. Later, after all our children entered public schools, I donated my Montessori materials to a new Montessori school opening in Fairbanks, Alaska."
