Now, Lesley Britton, the leading Montessori practitioner in England for more than twenty years, will show parents how to bring Montessori home. If you would like to facilitate the development of your child's unique personality, make it possible for him to develop to his full intellectual capacity, and help him become socially and emotionally well adjusted, then this is the book for you.

For planning your home, introducing your child to the supermarket or the neighborhood, and helping him discover other people and cultures, this book provides valuable tips and insights that help parents and children grow and learn together.

Update....2013...my child is now 9 years old and let me update my thoughts. I have always placed education as one of top priority in the list of most important focuses for my daughter (others being health, family, morals, respect to self and others, religion). I have been an advocate for my child especially in school, making certain she receives the education she should. I have been in the principal's office many many times by choice to discuss education. From the time I received this book, I did enroll my child into Montessori at age 4(researched all the schools in the area very carefully as if it were a university for my child). She attended Montessori for 2 years and now attends a public school, with enhanced tutoring and extracurricular sports afterschool balancing the education and growth process. Again, looking back, I do recommend this book.
i have found Maria Montessori's experience and approach to be my favorite in developing young learners. my approach has also been formed by John Holt, Thomas Jefferson Leadership Education (DeMille's), the Bible, John Taylor Gatto, Alternative Education Resource Organization (AERO), and others.
i just began a homeschool blog at [...] where i plan to document our Christian under-5s coop activities and other "train up your child in the way he should go" homeschooling information.
