As a parent, I also subscribe to much of Maria Montessori's philosophy, and RIE (the parenting philosophy developed by Magda Gerber that this book is based on) are very similar. In many ways, Montessori and RIE compliment each other. I've read texts by both Gerber and Montessori directly, and I must say that Janet Lansbury's books are more practically helpful. While Gerber and Montessori's original texts are very inspiring philosophically, what I appreciate about Lansbury's book are the practical examples. There's a bit of a "script" that she reiterates throughout the book that I find incredibly valuable.
The book isn't perfect, however. I do wish it was more carefully edited. I've read Lansbury's blog, and many of the best posts are in the book - I haven't read her blog extensively, so perhaps the entire book is simply a print version of her blog. While I love her conversational writing voice, there are a few typos (it's "such-and-such" not "such-in-such"), and areas where I wish she had expanded (a good editor would have helped here). A few of the chapters were simply examples and I would have appreciate a bit more insight from Lansbury herself, rather than being left to infer the message/meaning simply from reprinting other parent's letters (remember, we're exhausted, sleep-deprived parents of toddlers reading this! We need simplicity and repetition!). Other than these nit-picky issues, I find this to be an invaluable book. I will be reading and re-reading this book in the few years to come. Highly recommended to any parent or caregiver of a toddler!
