The Montessori Toddler
An inspiring, beautifully-designed guide for parents of toddlers looking to bring the principles of Montessori education—curiosity, independence, respect—into their daily lives.
Introducing a rare parenting book that will not only help you become a more effective parent but actually change how you see your children. Written by Montessori educator Simone Davies, this book shows you how to bring the educational values of a Montessori classroom into your home—while turning the whole idea of the “terrible twos” on its head.
The book includes ideas for how to set up Montessori-friendly spaces in your home, principles for fostering curiosity in your child and in yourself. It also includes parental help for specific Montessori skills including the winter coat flip; getting your toddler to pour his or her own water and clean up inevitable spills!
It also explains how a parent can really be present, be the child’s guide, and handle tantrums and problematic behaviour without resorting to bribes, threats, or punishment and truly celebrate every stage.
Of course, it is also beautiful to look at, with a bright, airy design and simple
colour illustrations and photographs.
Highly recommended by the Nido family.
