“Although ‘Montessori-compatible,’ this book is for ALL parents, grandparents, caregivers, and anyone spending time with toddlers. Written in two parts, the activity book beautifully supports both the child's development and the adult navigating the toddler years. The activities are truly easy-to-follow, and its gentle approach and helpful guidance is, too!” ―Julie Mitaro, Montessori-certified teacher, parent, and toddler grandparent
“I'm a mother of two boys―a preschooler and elementary schooler―and I SO wish I had this book when my boys were younger! I'm a Montessori-trained teacher myself and can vouch that this book is the real deal. I love how it explains about raising a child the Montessori way, as well as how to prepare an activity following Montessori philosophy. The lessons are laid out simply, yet beautifully, and give materials and approximate time needed for each lesson. The lessons are broken down in a way that any parent can understand. If you have a toddler in your life, I highly recommend this book!” ―Kari, Stella Nova Montessori, educational consultant
“Beth provides practical and meaningful developmental activities for toddlers focusing on motor skills, art, daily/practical life, sensory stimulation, and language. Being Montessori certified, I'm privileged to know how to present an activity the Montessori way to my child. But for a non-Montessori parent, the how-tos of presenting an activity is typically not very clear. I love how the author outlines the steps to present each activity to the child in the Montessori way, making it accessible to non-Montessori parents/caregivers. And these activities don't require any complex setups. They are doable with less materials, which are pretty much available in our homes. Highly recommend to parents of toddlers who're looking for resources to incorporate Montessori activities in their homes.” ―Monisha Monikantarajan, Montessori practitioner, Tamil Montessori

About the authors
Top reviews from other countries
In school there was an emphasis on playing with whatever you wanted to play with, completing your task, and then putting the items you used away and getting something else. No one led the children to do specific things.
All the activities in 5his book are initiated by adults, rather than by showing children an array of things they could do, and working with them to develop more intricate skills.
