As the mother of a four year old attending Montessori school, I was devastated that we would have to move before the school year was over-and just when my son was learning the basics of reading! At our new home, there was no Montessori school with a mid-year opening, so rather than wait to continue his education, I decided to home school in the Montessori method. Not being formally educated in Montessori, or even early childhood education, I was overjoyed to find this book. It is a clearly written instruction on teaching young children to read and write using many senses. My son, having familiarity with some of the tools already, actually instructed me a few times, but it is wonderful to watch him so confident and enjoying learning. For anyone homeschooling or looking to supplement their young childs education, this book is a valuable tool.

This is a easy to use book to use with lots of games to play. In keeping with the Montessori way, kids will not know they are learning. As a parent, the games and instructions are easy to follow. The book encourages you to follow the games in sequence, as they build on eachother. I liked that short explanations were given for each game reagrding what it would teach the children. One thing, it does assume having some of the Montessori tools/toys such as sandpaper letters which you can buy or make yourself. But many of the gamse require only you and your kid. Good book, I am moving toward a Montessori house and hope my kids will benefit from it.

My oldest son attended a Montessori school for the first 5 years of his formal schooling and I believe it gave him a firm foundation for his future schooling. Now I have two small children and I also want them to be exposed to the Montessori method, however, I want to homeschool them as well. This seemed a formidable task until I found Lynne Lawrence's book, as well as "Teaching Montessori In the Home by Elizabeth G. Hainstock", which gives me the guidelines and instruction I need to successfully utilize the Montessori method in my own home. I highly recommend this book to all parents, whether homeschooling or not.

Montessori Read and Write is a terrific book and is stuffed with many, many great ideas and suggestions for teaching your young child to read and instilling a love of reading. The content of this book can actually be a bit overwhelming. I suggest a very slow reading of this book, interspersed with trying the ideas slowly with your children. As with all children, some of these ideas will work better individually than others, but I think most children will benefit very much from this book. Happy reading to you and your children.

Lynne Lawrence has written a user friendly book that does not asume anything. Homeschoolers will love it. This is the tried and trusted method of teaching reading and writing in hundreds of Montessori schools around the world. Montessori students will use it for its clarity, illustrations and thoroughness.

Though the pictures in the book are a little dated the content is wonderful. It's great book with low cost ways to teach your children to read & write using the Montessori method at home. I am homeschool mom of three children using the Montessori method but, I am on a very tight budget. This book is full of low cost-free ideas for teaching your children to read & write using the Montessori method. The book is easy to read & follow. I am using this book to teach both my 4 & 6 year old how to read & write with great ease.

I checked out this book from our local Library and loved it. All the exercises provided, the sequences and suggestions have served to reinforce what our preschooler was learning in his Montessori classroom. I'm excited to see him writing after only a couple of months! And with interest and enthusiasm!!!
