Detailed and vivid description of events, like when the author first visit Montessori Children House in Italy. Fun read to see reactions of a mother completely foreign to the idea of Montessori education.
Great insight into the beginnings of the Montessori method...written only 5 years after Maria Montessori established her first school, it gives an American Mother's perspective on what she saw when visiting Rome. Very well written, with compelling arguments for adapting Montessori's ideas. I recommend this book to everyone interested in the topic- I've read a lot of Montessori books, but nothing like this. A whole new perspective!
