Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was a brilliant and original educator. Her work with children stressed the importance of autonomy as an educational goal. Renewed interest in her philosophy and teaching methods and the clear format of this book make it a good choice for public libraries. There is detailed information on her philosophy and an in-depth explanation of her teaching methods. Coverage of practical, sensorial, cultural, mathematic, and language activities includes a statement of the activity's purpose, materials needed (and suggestions on how to make them at home), and exercises. A good reference tool for everyone wanting to know more about or intending to try the Montessori method whether they are parents, teachers, or day-care personnel.
