Author of The No-Cry Discipline Solution
It gives plenty of background to Montessori's ideas, in easily-digestible bite-size pieces and in clear modern language. The beautiful illustrations help to explain the ideas and concepts.
I should think the sections on making your home child-friendly, creating a loving climate and 'side-stepping' tantrums are especially useful and practical, for ANY parent.
For those parents who DO choose a Montessori education for their child, or who consider doing so, chapter 6 (The Foundations For Learning) outlines high-quality information succinctly and provides a lovely introduction to some of the materials to be found in every good Montessori classroom.
The very last 3-page section gives parents nine things to look for in a good Montessori School. A beautiful, well documented and practical book.
