The Montessori Method: Human Body by Chiara Piroddi
Perfect non-fiction book for little children aged 5 and up to discover their own human body. Illustrated by Agnese Baruzzi, this activity book is full of exercises and games designed to stimulate the cognitive abilities of young children. Human body themed activities will help preschoolers develop the skill necessary to build a strong foundation in early concepts and discover the secrets of our body from head to toe.
This Montessori book covers an overview of each body area and the most important internal organs, starting at the top with the head and continuing down to the feet. The cards are inspired by the Montessori Method and help the children to develop an awareness of their own bodies by helping them to learn the name, the position, the size and the function of each organ. Each child interacts with the book but also carries out exercises directly with his or her own body in order to learn to observe it and listen to it.
Highly recommended! We recommend these 2 other books - Seasons and At Home!
