Format: Paperback
This short book is like an Army basic training manual. Montessori teaching methods are described in detail, like recipes in a cookbook. An interesting section on food for children recommends large amounts of fat and sugar foods and therefore seems outdated. The systematic order achieved by the method is described as desirable while too much variety and child/teacher interaction is regarded as undesirable. The book warns that over-stimulating a child's imagination could cause him or her to miss the purpose of the lessons (tell that to Barney). The author's works have a ring of truth throughout and are valuable because of the spirit they convey even today.

The book is not thick, but it has quite a number of exercises Montessori used in her class (with pictures and clear instructions). I find the book educational. Also Montessori stressed that it's important that the teacher just plays the role of a guide at first for each game/task to let the children know how he/she is supposed to do, and not exactly how he/she will do it. By letting the children learn through "trial and error", they learn through their mistakes, and then develop the skill to observe and correct the errors by themselves. A valuable addition to the Montessori knowledge bank!
