Books for children. Inspired by Montessori. "The combination of phonetics and simple retro illustrations makes for an excellent entree into pre-literacy." - Wall Street Journal
My First Book of Patterns
Stripes, polka dots, plaid, chevron, and more are featured in this first-ever patterns concept book that provides readers with the vocabulary to name what they see in the world around them. The ten most prevalent patterns are presented first as a single element (This is a circle ...), then as a pattern (... a lot of circles make polka dots!). Conceived by educators and illustrated in vivid candy-colored hues, this pitch-perfect introduction to patterns will engage the artistic, mathematical, and linguistic parts of every young child's mind.
Montessori: Map Work
As with all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. When learning geography, students first develop an understanding that the earth is a round globe, made up of land and water.
Montessori: Shape Work
When learning shapes, Montessori students first develop an understanding of the spatial object in comparison to other shapes and a relevant application for each shape—before learning the names.
Montessori: Number Work
This book follows the Montessori method by introducing the numbers 1 to 10 first as quantities to count before showing them as numerals.
Montessori: Letter Work
In Montessori classrooms, students learn to write before they learn to read, so the process is driven by their own words and thoughts before those of others. We start with the sounds of the letters, and then come to learn their names.
