Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Toddlers are a misunderstood population, according to Montessori teacher and blogger Davies (The Montessori Notebook), who facilitates online workshops for raising responsible, curious children, modeled after the work of Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori (1870–1952). Montessori posited that education, not medicine, was the answer to improving the health of children with emotional and mental disabilities and went on to develop successful schools that have produced graduates such as Jeff Bezos and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Davies lays out the basic principles of Montessori child-centered learning, in which students work at their own pace within a prepared environment using hands-on concrete materials. Alongside photographs and Imai's charming illustrations are ideas for setting up a learning-friendly environment and addressing self-care for adults as well as daily care for toddlers. VERDICT With every page chock-full of plans for how to make one's home a haven for a youngster's intellectual and emotional growth, this valuable manual fills a gap on a topic not as frequently addressed in the literature on toddler development.Julia M. Reffner, Richmond, VA --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it
By Breanna on March 1, 2020
Y’all. So I ordered the book “The Montessori Toddler” on amazon last week and not to be dramatic or anything, but it changed my life.

I’m getting rid of *most* of the plastic and junk toys and being mindful of what I set out for my kids. I’ve noticed a huge difference in their play since making these changes, and I’m a believer in less is more!

I’m a mom who goes through toys almost every month and will throw stuff away left and right. I can’t believe how much was back in this area. I dumped all of the storage bins out so I could really see what I was working with.

I’m kind of embarrassed at the ridiculousness of toys that we had, but I know I’m not the only one whose house looks like this.

If you’re a parent to a toddler or are expecting a baby, I urge you to buy this book. I wish I would’ve discovered it back before I had any kids!

This play area in our living room is still a work in progress, but I couldn’t wait to share. I’ve actually changed some things since taking this “after” photo.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! Plus the Charts at the Back are Awesome!
By Ellie J. on May 11, 2019
This book is fantastic! I bought this book looking for more ways to incorporate Montessori philosophies with my toddler at home. What I wasn't expecting was all the incredible parenting advice that came with this book. It is like an expanded version of "How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way" (Tim Seldin) specific for toddlers that meets a summarized version of "Positive Discipline: The First Three Years" (Jane Nelsen) with a layout that makes reading it fly by. Not to mention the gorgeous photography throughout.

The author's charts in the back of the book are SO helpful! She has an "Instead of this, say that" section as well as a list of suggestions of activities for your child broken down by age. I will frequently be referencing back to both of these charts. I also loved all the books she referenced to throughout her book. The ones I haven't already read sounded so intriguing that I added them to my to-be-read list. Clearly my parenting style is very in line with the author's so I found it easy to love this book.

And finally, the chapter on "Putting it into Practice" was a gold mine. The author tackles subjects like feeding, sleeping, toileting, pacifiers, siblings, brushing teeth, getting dressed, sharing, hiting, biting, throwing, clingy stages, screen time, and even how to help build skills for an introverted toddler. There were times when I wanted more from the author on a specific topic, but in those times she generally referenced further reading which works well for me since I enjoy reading. She gives such a great over-view of each topic!

All in all, this book is excellent! I would highly recommend it for any parent or caregiver of toddlers.

I recently received the Montessori toddler book. After reading a few pages I noticed a feminine pad was left between 2 pages!!!
I assumed I bought a new book but I guess it wasn’t?
