The Montessori Method: At Home by Chiara Piroddi
Another perfect non-fiction book for children aged three and up, a collection of activity cards inspired by the Montessori Method. They present fun, practical experiences that children aged three and up can do at home, but they are more than just play materials for the children; they are also cues for parents as to how they can involve their children in home life and how to make their home more "Montessorian".
Illustrated by Agnese Baruzzi, each activity takes place in one room of the house. Children can discover which utensils are used the most in the kitchen, how to set the table, the correct sequence for brushing their teeth, how to put their toys in order, how to organise their bedroom closets, how to make their own library in the living room or how to bring nature to the terrace.
Following the principles of the Montessori Method, which values creativity and freedom of choice in learning, this activity book is full exercises and games that are specially designed to stimulate the cognitive abilities of young children.
