Written expressly for the home schooling parent, this very accessible overview of the Montessori method provides theory, lessons, and even instructions for making materials. An ambitious undertaking by the author of The Essential Montessori (R97), this resource manages to distill the essence of Primary Montessori lessons into one user-friendly volume. Because the concepts and practices are stated so succinctly, even trained teachers may want to mine these books for well-expressed answers to the basic questions new families tend to ask. Easy to understand and thoughtfully organized. Paperback, 115 pages.
