Product description

Review

“This book deserves careful reading, for the author's views are as relevant (and revolutionary) now as when they were first proposed.” ―New York Times Book Review

“Startling insights...she is an inspiring teacher . . . educators of all persuasions will find her book alive with ideas.” ―Library Journal

About the Author

Maria Montessori, born in Italy in 1870, dedicated her life to learning how best to educate children―particularly the poorest, most challenged children―during their vulnerable beginnings. Today her legacy is evident worldwide. She died in the Netherlands in 1952.

John Chattin-McNichols, Ph.D., is the President of the American Montessori Society and Professor of Education at Seattle University. He is the author and editor of several books on Montessori education.
