About the Author
Aline D. Wolf has made the education of children the focus of her work throughout her adult years. Her efforts stemmed from her own life as a parent of nine children. When she and her husband became frustrated with the educational process in their area, they worked together to introduce what was then a fairly new method of education--the Montessori Method.
At that time, Montessori's works were not well known in the U.S., were poorly translated and full of repetition. Aline wanted to share with other American parents the gems of wisdom she discovered in Montessori's writings, so she interpreted the words of Montessori in smoother English and combined them with modern photographs. The result was a groundbreaking book titled A Parents' Guide to the Montessori Classroom that has sold over 600,000 copies.
Widely recognized as a renowned modern interpreter of Maria Montessori's philosophy and methods, Aline's publications through Parent Child Press have provided innovations on Montessori's original work--particularly in art appreciation and nurturing the spirit of children. She cites her book, Nurturing the Spirit in Non-Sectarian Classrooms, as her most significant accomplishment to date, because the pivotal work has influenced not only the Montessori movement worldwide, but also many teachers in non-Montessori schools.

First, you make folders to hold the pictures, preferably while the kids are down for a nap. The book describes exactly how to make the folders, purchasing pocket folders and then cutting them down. I found the illustrations accompanying the explanation to be invaluable. FWIW, I used Oxford brand for my folders, which you can order here on Amazon. Although the book calls for cutting the folders a specific size, I cut mine 1/2 inch wider, then cut only the inside down the remaining 1/2 inch. I then folded that overlap around to the inside and glued it down (my book calls for stapling the edge, and I didn't want staples to possibly poke little fingers).
After preparing the folders, you prepare the art cards. This book explains how to mount postcards on cardstock so that everything is the same size (kids are supposed to match up the actual content, not the size of the postcard). In addition to this how-to book, there are also supplemental booklets of pre-printed cards. I highly recommend getting the supplements (all available on Amazon) because they're less work than finding postcards on your own, it's less expensive, and no mounting/labeling is needed. All you do is cut on the dotted lines and put the cards into the folder it says to put them in :) But those supplemental art card books are not required. You can just get this book to learn how the program works, then buy postcards on your own to implement what's described in the book (or download pix off the internet and print them out).
This book explains the program, which has 8 different steps, each teaching different skills. You can look at the supplemental art card books that go along with this to see exactly what those steps are. Kids learn to recognize famous paintings, learn about well-known artists, and even learn about different schools of art.
