The bestselling educational book helping parents connect with their child's learning potential.

The great, pioneering achievement of Maria Montessori was to recognize the crucial importance of a child’s first six years of development. During this time, a child’s power of absorption are at their highest, and lifelong attitudes and patterns of learning are formed. It is for this very sensitive period that the Montessori system of education can provide you, as a parent, with a unique opportunity to help your child develop into a responsible, thinking individual.
This bestselling book has already helped thousands of parents connect with their children by introducing them at home to the dynamic Montessori method of education. The techniques, exercises, and easy-to-make Montessori materials presented here instill a sense of discovery and awareness in your child, and serve as an essential foundation for future learning. Covering the pre-school years from ages two to five, the lessons focus on reading and writing, mathematics, sensory awareness, and practical life skills. Updated and revised, this acclaimed guide puts the entire range of the Montessori system within your reach, so you can make the most of your child’s vital years.
