Format: Paperback
I picked up a copy of How to Raise an Amazing Child - and I must say that it is an amazing book. It is a gem filled with important tips as well as a beautiful piece of art. I find myself leafing though it just to enjoy the photographs and the presentation. I love the practical and helpful ideas throughout, such as ideas on how to create a meaningful birthday celebration, how to encourage and teach helpfulness, and how to set up your child's world to encourage the enjoyment and learning of new skills. This is a worthwhile book for any parent to enjoy and learn from.

I bought this book as recommended by a Montessori site. I can't help but think Montessori is turning in her grave. If you're so lay that you need this book that is 90% useless photographs, 10% minimally informative text, then you need to reconsider Montessori for your child. I do not exaggerate when I say that one page out of Maria Montessori's Discovery of the Child or The Secret of Childhood would be of infinitely more value and can paint a single picture worth more than the hundreds of useless ones in this book. This book does not do Montessori justice in any way, shape or form.

Format: Paperback
Dozens of pictures of happy, focused children grace the pages of "How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way." Some show kids playing with simple, classic toys; others show young students learning and creating within thoughtfully organized, luminous classrooms. More well-behaved children dress themselves, prepare their own snacks and clear the table. Indeed, in his eye-catching book, Montessori Foundation president Tim Seldin offers guidance on bringing the principles of Montessori education into readers' homes.

The Montessori method emphasizes self-directed learning, practical life skills, and observation leading to adaptation. Environment also plays an important role, with natural materials promoting learning and a calm mind. But even parents who do not have kids enrolled in a Montessori school can learn much from this book. Simple activities such as creating a treasure basket of objects that appeal to different senses will promote exploration and interaction. Others suggest ways to incorporate math and reading into everyday life. Further strategies can help with toilet training, cleaning up, sharing and tantrums.

With inspiring thoughts and practical tips, Seldin shares the Montessori vision of raising a thoughtful child who will connect with others and do good in the world. He offers a list of manners and how to teach them: through careful language and a positive approach. Throughout, the Montessori parent learns to return to the basics and raise an amazing child with patience, understanding, praise and respect.

I bought this book because it was one of the "suggestions" from Amazon. The book isn't bad, just not as hands-on or full of ideas, practical examples as other Montessori books I've read (i.e. Montessori from the Start - which I think is the best so far). I'd say it's a basic/general Montessori book for someone who is not familiar with this philosophy. The quality of the book (paper, binding, photos) is very nice. I will used it as a reference book to go back to when needed.
