Montessori: A Modern Approach has been called the single best book for anyone -- educator, childcare professional, and especially parent -- seeking answers to the questions: What is the Montessori method? Are its revolutionary ideas about early childhood education relevant to today's world? And most important, especially for today's dual-career couples. Is a Montessori education right for my child?
Paula Polk Lillard writes both as a trained educators and as a concerned parent -- she has many years as a public school teacher, but it was her enthusiasm for the education her own child experienced in a Montessori school that led her to become a leading voice in the Montessori movement in this country.
Her book offers the clearest and most concise statement of the Montessori method of child development and education available today.
Paula Polk Lillard is the author of Montessori Today and Montessori in the Classroom. She is cofounder and director of the Forest Bluff School in Lake Bluff, Illinois.
"Lillard's account is the best to date. She has a sensitive understanding about how and why Montessori methods can work so superbly."
"Provides an intelligent guide to the famous philosophy and method, and answers many questions parents and teachers may have."
