Montessori: A Modern Approach (Google eBook)
Montessori: A Modern Approach has been called the single best book for anyone -- educator, childcare professional, and especially parent -- seeking answers to the questions: What is the Montessori method? Are its revolutionary ideas about early childhood education relevant to today's world? And most important, especially for today's dual-career couples. Is a Montessori education right for my child?
Paula Polk Lillard writes both as a trained educators and as a concerned parent -- she has many years as a public school teacher, but it was her enthusiasm for the education her own child experienced in a Montessori school that led her to become a leading voice in the Montessori movement in this country.
Her book offers the clearest and most concise statement of the Montessori method of child development and education available today.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review: Montessori: A Modern ApproachUser Review - Sacha - Goodreads
Succinct introduction. It is only about 150 pages and of that I didn't even need to read the last chapter. That chapter was selling the method, but I was sold. It was also talking about 'modern' applications. This is when I realized the book was written in the 1970s. Read full review
