From the Back Cover
Based on key Montessori principles of learning through experience, TEACH ME TO DO IT MYSELF features simple activities to explore with your child and develop his or her senses, coordination, language skills, number sense, and science interests.
This fun and practical activity book will guide you as you work and play with your child. Montessori principles focus on teaching children essential life skills and giving them a greater understanding of the world around them.
When quality time is in short supply, you need a practical workbook that helps you give your child the best possible start. TEACH ME TO DO IT MYSELF is exactly that, an essential workbook with step-by-step play routines and work exercises that you and your child can enjoy together, and that enables your child to develop an early set of life skills. A multitude of activities is covered, from learning to button a shirt, to starting to grasp numerals and develop simple sentences. All activities are presented with guidelines and suggestions that progress in terms of difficulty.
The activities are simple and especially framed for parents with no specialized knowledge, guiding them to work and play confidently with their children. Projects are based on the Montessori philosophy, and are focused for children between two and five years old. The activities are not expensive or overly time-consuming.
Divided into five chapters, the book opens with life skills and then introduces language, number sense, and science skills. TEACH ME TO DO IT MYSELF provides a unique opportunity for you to gain that important insight into your child’s needs and involve yourself in the development of your child’s coordination, awareness, and self-esteem.

However, I really like the lay out of this book. The sections are divided nicely and each one has a lot of different activity ideas to do at home with your child. On each page, she also gives you more variations of the same activity to adjust as your child's abilities increase. This is very useful. She also gives a detailed list of things you need for each activity.
I have a two year old son, and I am looking forward to implementing some new activities in to our daily routine. I was a preschool teacher before having my son, and I know from the children that I taught there, and my experience as a mother, children learn best by doing, and get excited about learning useful things. I love Montessori's philosophy on teaching children.
