This review is from: Montessori: The Science behind the Genius (Hardcover)
You can read other Montessori books and be inspired, but if you read Lillard's Montessori: The Science Behind the Genius, you will be persuaded by the sheer weight of the evidence in support of the eight foundational principles of Montessori Education. The Montessori community will love this book but I think that anyone who is interested in understanding what is wrong with traditional education should read this book. It is a scholarly work that any parent can understand. I absolutely loved the book and highly recommend it.
