Montessori children from around the world provided artwork for this celebration of the calm, peaceful setting to which all Montessori schools aspire. The narrative highlights everyday happenings in a Montessori classroom and then explores the bigger lessons.
The principles implicit in Montessori’s philosophy of education—cooperative learning, respect for individuals and other cultures, responsibility for our environment—challenge children to create “peaceful classrooms” in and for the rest of their lives. Imagine such a world! By Aline D. Wolf. Paperback, 64 pages.
