Review

"A moving book, and a deeply honest one. Lillard brings a compassionate intelligence to her task. . . . This is the book of a strong, wise, and sensitive teacher. It is a joy."
—from the foreword by Jerome Bruner, author of The Culture of Education and Research Professor of Psychology, New York University

"A clear account of how and why the method works. I hope as many parents and teachers as possible will read it."
—Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

"Every teacher wishing to take a practical and philosophical look at Montessori teaching should read this book."
—David Kahn, Executive Director, North American Montessoi Teachers' Association (NAMTA)

"Through this diary parents and teachers witness the joyous explosion that can occur in the preschool experience."
Publishers Weekly
