    There are some practical uses in this book, but the methods are repetitive and there is more to Montessori than the three step method of teaching. This is a great starting point though for people wanting lesson ideas.

    Although the concepts of the Montessori method are "timeless" the book seemed dated when talking about resources, materials and applications. It was a short read, but tried to pack in too much - it covered ages birth through six and would randomly throw in a complex lesson - for example spending 2 pages on "here's how you can teach your child Spanish." I'll use some of the lessons, but it cover such a broad span of time and concepts that I'll definitely be picking and choosing, which the book explicitly says not to do.

    I give this book 3 stars. It was a quick and easy read and it covered just what I wanted, tips for teach Montessori at Home. It was a little lacking in detail, so I wouldn't quite call it a "complete" guide. It left out several of the basic Montessori Primary materials and presentations, but it did offer some DIY solutions for the materials that it covered. I will use this text as a loose guide, but will definitely consult several other sources as I plan my Montessori preschool at home.

    This was a reread but it is so practical I will likely purchase a copy - looking forward to doing these activities with our daughter. My favorite quote this time around:"A parent who is able to raise a child well and then let him go is a far better parent than one who raises a dependent, clinging creature who cannot lead a life of his own."

    Basic introduction to Montessori with activities for 3, 4 and 5 years to prepare them for reading, writing and kindergarten. I thought the lesson plans were a little disorganized (or not presented in a very easy-to-follow manner) and the book had quite a few typos which was surprising. But, if you're looking for a simple Montessori preschool curriculum to follow you might check this out.

    I would have preferred a bit more background into the philosophy. However, I did appreciate the more DIY nature of the exercises compared to other books that imply that the only way to do this correctly is by spending a ton of money. That being said, I was already planning on DIYing most of it, so it wasn't that necessary for my purposes.

    Meh. The entire first third is a snooze and gives detail that no one cares about (no one being me and anyone I can imagine). The meat is interesting and useful. I wish the outlines on introducing material had been fleshed out more fully.

    A really bare bones look at Montessori. Read another book to get the philosophy behind the method. Then read this book for an inexpensive way to apply the method in your home. For more:

    This book provides a good initial look at the Montessori teaching methodology, giving lots of actual examples of what the methods actually look like. I was expecting more of a broader overview and background on the philosophy behind her teachings...

    Perhaps it's not the best introduction to Montessori pedagogy, but I wanted more projects and more explanation as to why these specific projects were suggested.

    Not my favorite setup. I like a more clearly laid out lesson plan than this book provided.
