Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Maria Montessori went beyond the conventions of the day to seek a new way of knowing and loving a child. In THE DISCOVERY OF THE CHILD, she describes the nature of the child and her method of working more fully with the child's urge to learn. With 16 pages of photographs.

About the Author

Dr. Maria Montessori (1870–1952) was an Italian physician, teacher, and innovator, acclaimed for her eponymous educational method that builds on the way children naturally learn. She opened the first Montessori school, the Casa dei Bambini, in Rome in 1907, and today there are more than 22,000 throughout the world. Dr. Montessori wrote numerous books on scientific pedagogy, including The Montessori Method, The Secret of Childhood, and The Discovery of the Child.
