My daughter's Montessori school told us about this book. It is amazing. I read it after my second child was born and really ought to re-read it. If memory serves me correctly, the author is an Italian medical doctor with a Montessori background. The book offers beautiful insights, gives good practical advice for giving baby a strong start in life and helps a parent to look with even more wonder upon the gift of a child! I have given it as a gift b/c I got so much out of it myself.

This is a truly wonderful book. Easy to read or skim, you won't be disappointed by Dr. Montanaro's exploration of the world of the infant, from the prespective of Montessori philosophy. This book would make an excellent gift for expectant parents!

Even though this book is written in 1991, I feel like the information is timeless. It is not outdated because humans have been raising our young for thousands of years. It gave me an outlook about babies that I never had before. I was a clueless soon to be mom and I feel like the insight in this book is priceless. It makes mention to Montessori Method and my research about MM is what brought me to this book, I am very happy I found it. I refer back to it as my baby grows to refresh my memory.
