The book Dr. Montessori wrote is a very different experience than this one represents. If you are interested in the book seek out a different edition consider one with a forward by John Chattin - McNicholes. The Absorbent Mind [ABSORBENT MIND] [Paperback]
This is a very dense book, and requires a good deal of concentration and time to read. I would recommmend The Child in the Family as the first book for one wanting an overview of Montessori ideas.
In the description of this book they even state the the book you are able to search in is not the actual book you receive, and they state that the book showed is by another publishing company but what you buy is their book.......TOTALLY FALSE ADVERTISEMENT....... this kind of thing really makes me mad...... I have never given anyone a bad review but this is a SHAME to the Dr Maria Montessori name.
This is a correct version
The Absorbent Mind [ABSORBENT MIND] [Paperback]
The cover picture show next to the stars for this review (a young child jumping) is NOT a full, complete and accurate version. BN Publishing, Wilder Publications and other print on demand versions that are around $10.00 (US) are misleading and incomplete, missing portions of chapters and even full chapters.
DO NOT waste your money on those editions. Buy the real thing and enjoy the journey into authentic Montessori. Well worth the extra time and investment.
