    1. My son was born very prematurely and had significant developmental delays as a result. Sitting, crawling, walking, talking, etcl significantly delayed. This has been a blessing in disguise as I believe I am the type of parent that would have focused more on superficial knowledge, believing my son's ability to rattle off ABC's at age 2 was a sign of learning/understanding. I have always imagined I would send my children to a Montessori school, but naively believed it wouldn't be suitable for a ch [...]

    2. I liked this book because it is filled with some great ideas for developmentally appropriate activities for young children. Most of these activities beat toys from Wal-Mart any day. Plus, you can make most of the activities from materials from around your home. Cheap ways to effectively educate! Yes! It is easy to read and all of the activities are simple to set up. Part I of the book describes a little bit about the history of Montessori. It reviews the life of Maria Montessori and how her meth [...]

    3. I am soooooooooo glad I finally read this book! I have been making and buying Montessori materials for my son and I realized that some of them I hadn't clearly understood the correct way to present the materials to him - or I was trying to present a material that he wasn't quite ready for yet. This is an excellent guide on about what ages you can present various sensorial & practical life lessons to your child.

    4. "Education need not be imposed on the child; given a learning environment he will be free to act and to develop himself along the lines of his own inner direction. Thus Montessori felt that there must be freedom within the prepared environment to develop his physical, mental and spiritual growth. The young child is very hand-minded, and the materials are geared to his need to learn through movement, because it is movement that starts the intellect working. The true Montessori classroom is functi [...]

    5. I wanted to learn a bit of background about montessori teaching, and stumbled across this book at the library. Published in 1968, some of it is a bit outdated - "For practical-life training the Bissel Little Queen set is ideal - it contains an apron, carpet sweeper, mop, broom, sponge and dustpan. It may be found at any toy shop or obtained with trading stamps." But overall it has a brief yet thorough history of Maria Montessori, an outline of how and why montessori is taught, and tons of great [...]

    6. I've checked this out from the library before and skimmed it, but I read through the whole thing this time and I'm going to buy it. The exercises aren't to difficult to do at home and the equipment isn't too unusual or specific. This looks like a great way to add the Montessori method, and some of it's benefits, at home if you, like me, can't afford to send your children to a Montessori preschool.This book is a great place to start, but I'd recommend further reading on the subject if you're inte [...]

    7. I read this, but it wasn't really helpful for me because I was never able to make it work. I didnt understand the "how" and "why". I just decided I might as well go get certified and took an accreditted 40 credit hour program and feel more strongly that this book poorly represents montessori and the lessons. I appreciate the attempt, but the layman attempt made by the book really missed the mark for me. I wasnt able to implement montessori methods at my home with it.

    8. Es un libro muy práctico para todos aquellos interesados en la pedagogía Montessori. Explica la importancia que tiene la estimulación sensorial tempranda del niño, para su desarrollo y expone una gran y diversa cantidad de ejercicios/didácticas útiles. Recomiendo.

    9. If reading Maria Montessori's books are a little bit hard, then this book will be great for you. It gives succinct reasons for giving a total body education with great tips on how to apply the Montessori Method in your home on a limited budget.

    10. This book was written in the 60s and it has a funny tone to it; very authoritarian and kind of angry. I did like the ideas at the end on how to make your own montessori materials and I plan to try some.

    11. This book was an easy read mostly because most of the book is activities to do with your children to teach them skills at home before they enter school. I really liked that they focused on real-life skills such as dressing and cleaning.

    12. This book, which is aimed at parents, is an excellent introduction to the Montessori method. I love how straightforward the author presents the hows and whys of Montessori and there's just enough information to get you started. With that said, if you're interested in learning more, I highly recommend How To Raise An Amazing Child the Montessori Way, which gives a more in-depth look at the Montessori method, and The Absorbent Mind, which was written by Maria Montessori herself.

    13. A reasonable collection of Montessori activities suitable for the home. Could use more early language development (for instance, it does not explain the sound games, which give young children a grasp of phonics). However, it has a very useful section on how to make Montessori materials yourself, which allows the parent to save a good deal of money.

    14. am glad I stumbled upon this book. this book gives you an intro on how to plan and set up Montessori activities with materials lying around at home . the activities have clear instructions . a must read for beginners trying to understand Montessori principles

    15. a great book, deals with age 3-5yrs so better read it before the age as she gives you the right track to how to start with your preschooler and how to make the tools in an easy way instead of buying it and also at the end she wrote recommended toys that will be also useful for the child.

    16. Concise read describing the history of the Dr. Montessori's educational approach, a brief summary of the Montessori summary, and activities listed according to age in these categories: practical life exercises, early sensorial exercises, reading and writing exercises, and arithmetic exercises. Hainstock also describes ways that you can make your own Montessori supplies to do most, if not all, of the above exercises for little money. These exercises and how to make the very straight forward mater [...]

    17. This is a very accessible book that proves to be a good introduction to homeschooling using the Montessori method. The instructions for making material are clear and helpful, especially as the material can be very expensive when purchased. The hand-made options not only harken to Montessori's original approach to materials and provide a personal touch and investment, but they are also necessary in a homeschool situation, where the number of children does not necessitate or validate the expense o [...]

    18. This book is scant on information about the history and methods of Montessori (but I knew that from other reviews when I got it). Instead, it has quite a few ideas for helping your child (age 1 1/2 to about 5, I think) follow his interests in his world at his pace. All the activities have a "control fo error," which means that your child will still figure out for himself that there is a right way and a wrong way to do things (no crazy relativism, which, when I was first exploring Montessori, I w [...]

    19. I picked up this book to see how I could add Montessori activities into my home. I work full time and my son goes to daycare, I am not the target audience. This book was really geared at people who want to teach in the home, talking about setting aside hour out of each day and a classroom, and having a separate time to do the activities, not allowing the kids to use the materials outside of that time. Still I found that the layout has allowed me to pick and choose and I plan to do just that, wor [...]

    20. These Montessori lessons are so easy to do at home, and probably you are doing them without realizing it. I especially like how the Montessori method focuses on practical life skills, like setting the table, cleaning up spills, cooking, etc. This books offers an entire preschool curriculum that you can use at home, including math and language. I just pick and choose what would be fun and interesting for my 2 y/o. It's amazing to me what toddlers can accomplish and learn while having fun with the [...]

    21. No matter you familiarity or feelings on Montessori methods, this book is an INVALUABLE resource for parents of toddlers through preschoolers! The manipulatives and activities are gentle and age appropriate but also highly instructive. The time I spent with my children using the Montessori methods in this book was priceless -- obviously. But the speed at which my children grasped the objectives was a shocking delight. I *highly* recommend Teaching Montessori in the Home: Pre-School Years to all [...]

    22. This is the book to have if you want practical applications of Montessori principles. There are even templates and instructions for making a lot of the materials needed. I think it's important to have a background on the history and theory behind whatever type of education you choose for your child it is also really important to have some hand holding when it comes to getting yourself up and running. This book provides that hand holding where Montessori From the Start provided the theory. Excell [...]

    23. Note to self: check this out again when Ellie is 2. There are a lot of activities in here that I definitely want to try. My favorite bit of wisdom is that children should be allowed to explore and learn at their own pace. Implementing that will help children love to learn. I also love that all five senses are engaged in learning basic skills. I'm not sure that we will completely implement a Montessori environment but will definitely borrow a lot from it as Ellie ages.

    24. I will use so many of these ideas in the coming years. I love the simple format and direct and easy to follow instructions. The only thing I wished for was a better sense of how a Montessori day or lesson works. For example, I know children are supposed to work on one thing at a time, and use a work mat, but I didn't feel like I had a good overview of how to run things in a Montessori way. That's a small quibble, though. Overall, I really enjoyed this.

    25. This book was great. A lot of the ideas I was already doing, but it gave me a few more good ideas, especially for numbers. The biggest problem was that the suggested projects required either access to a hardware store and tools or some kind of special Montessori store because I'd never heard of some of the things. But Kennedy is doing really well in preschool and some of it is because of this book!

    26. I picked up this book from the library after it was recommended on a blog. I was hoping to get some more ideas on things we could be doing with Maggie at home. This book is very easy to absorb and can be read in about 30 minutes. There are several activities presented. Unfortunately, I am not about to build Montessori teaching devices and hold school in my house for an hour every day :) Some of it seemed outdated as well. All in all a fine book, just not totally helpful to us.

    27. I'm not interested in starting an actual homeschool program for my kids but I'm always looking for new activities and ways to teach them things. I like the Montessori point of view. This book had some nice ideas of projects to make for my kids. There can never be enough activites or lessons in my mommy bag of tricks.

    28. This is a quick read and a good overview for the Montessori method itself. It describes HOW to do what The Essential Montessori only talked about doing. There are also practical ideas for how to make the materials/manipulatives as a cost-effective alternative to the expensive Montessori items marketed for this method.
