Finally, here is the giveaway I’ve been promising you guys. In light of my Montessori posts last week for Montessori Education Week, I’m doing a giveaway for a set of three Montessori books.
Incase you missed the posts, they are A Montessori Journey, from a Montessori Mom and Practicing Montessori Principles in our Home. You also might find my post Tips for Organizing your Child’s Closet helpful – which was recommended last week to parents during a workshop at my daughters’ school. On my brian for my next Montessori themed posts is something on potty training.
Back to the books. I won them at an auction at my toddler’s Montessori school this fall. And now I’m passing them on to one lucky, interested reader.
I first read the book Montessori from the Start, The child at home from birth to age three, when my middle child was a baby and I wanted to learn ways to implement Montessori principles into our home for her. I found the information helpful in ways of setting up our home, that resulted in happier babies/toddlers wanting to do things themselves before they were able to communicate what that was. This book is a staple in the parent library at my older girls’ Montessori school.
Montessori Madness, A parent to parent argument for Montessori education looks at how Montessori is different from mainstream education. Written by a father of three children, it details why they made the Montessori choice for their children.
If you have every wanted to learn more about the science of Montessori, an education method developed by a scientist herself (Maria Montessori) – then the book Montessori, The science behind the genius is the evidence based book you’ll want to read on why the method works.
Really, whether you are a parent exploring the Montessori philosophy for the first time, a homeschooler, or someone like me who has had children in Montessori schools for five years, these three books offer so much to learn.
The giveaway is for all three books mentioned above.
