Product description

Review

This clear and accessible book is terrific - full of insight and wisdom. Don't miss it! --Fatherhood Institute

I am delighted to endorse this very welcome publication from the Montessori St Nicholas charity which will help support parents to get involved in their children's learning. Parental engagement is an important focus in the new Early Years Foundation stage and early years workers and teachers have a crucial role to play in building strong partnerships with parents to help children flourish. This new guide will help them achieve this with the practical ideas and information needed to help parents really get involved. --4Children

Parents can so often feel anxious about ways to play with their children;Montessori provides parents with practical ways to enjoy and contribute to their child's development that are cost efficient and build into daily routines. --Family and Parenting Insitute

The first five years of a child's life is a time of tremendous learning and exploration. This book provides helpful and achievable tips to parents on how to support their child's early development at home. --Museum of Childhood

Effective parenting makes a proven difference to family life and unlocks a child's potential, but we know that isn't easy! This book offers a balance of information for parents, giving uncomplicated explanations and guidance to increase understanding and knowledge and provides practical examples of how to nurture a child to reach their full potential. --Parenting UK

From the Author

Kathi Hughes:
When I was growing up and did anything well, my mother would always say matter-of-factly, "That's because you're a Montessori kid. I attended Montessori schools from the age of 2 and 1/2 to 6, building my own foundation that has stuck with me throughout my life. I went on to train as a Montessori teacher at the Montessori Centre International in London and currently work from home as a distance learning tutor and proof-reader, but my main job is as a Montessori parent of 3 young children.

This book gives you a peek into the world of Montessori and gives parents some wonderful ideas of incorporating these ideas into our homes. I have my own copy and have already send 2 copies to my friends with new babies, which they love. I like how there is no preaching, no wrong or right way just some wonderful ideas to make the world a better place for our children.

I was very disappointed in this buy. The book contains more pictures than actual text and information. To be honest I think that any mother who has experience with Montessori approach would be able to write a book like this. Don't recommend it. If you are interested in Montessori approach for babies up to age 3, would recommend a book Montessori form the start, it is great and gives so much more!

I was hoping this book would be more of a practical guide or provide me with more hands on tips for everyday Montessori life at home, but I feel it's mostly a beginner's guide for parents who can't be bothered to read more in-depth books on the topic. If you want a simplistic summary of the Montessori method then buy this, but there are far better books available if you really want to know what it's all about.

Learning Together is an extremely useful addition to the literature on parenting. The volume is beautifully presented and accessible, with a terrific variety of images that capture the joys of chidren exploring the world with their parents and illustrate an insightful text. This is a book to read through or dip in and out of as the mood takes.

This barely qualifies for the term "book" - it is so feeble an effort. If you find that reading it has enlarged your understanding (of anything at all) it is likely that your intelligence precludes tha ability to tie your own shoelaces. It is witless and pointless. I suppose you could bore a hole in one corner and hang it behind your lavatory door, but I fear that implies a degree of flattery on my part that is not justified. Do not waste your money - you would get more valuable insights from reading the Dandy or the Beano.
