What can parents do to help their youngest children in their task of self-formation? How does the Montessori method of hands-on learning and self-discovery relate to the youngest infants? This authoritative and accessible book answers these and many other questions. Based on Dr. Maria Montessori's instructions for raising infants, its comprehensive exploration of the first three years incorporates the furnishings and tools she created for the care and comfort of babies. From the design of the baby's bedroom to the child-sized kitchen table, from diet and food preparation to clothing and movement, the authors provide guidance for the establishment of a beautiful and serviceable environment for babies and very young children. They introduce concepts and tasks, taking into account childrens' ''sensitive periods'' for learning such skills as dressing themselves, food preparation, and toilet training. Brimming with anecdote and encouragement, and written in a clear, engaging style, Montessori from the Start is a practical and useful guide to raising calm, competent, and confident children.

Montessori: Living the Good Life will surprise you more than you can imagine. With a master’s degree in theology, author Connie Ripley Lujan delves deep into Maria’s spiritual understanding of the roots of war. Passionately she explains how we can make a difference. Maria Montessori discovered the secret miracle of childhood over one hundred years ago. Her vision of peace lives on in this passionate memoir of a disciple of her spirit. Maria’s enlightened revelation of the newborn’s talent to construct his future life with his own mind is illuminated step by step as each chapter probes deeper into mankind’s existence. The key to assisting the new ones, Maria tells us, lies in the adult’s willingness to collaborate with the child’s desire for an appropriate environment. Education, for the child and the adult, is the crucial element. A thoughtful guide for mothers, fathers, grandparents, and all educators and citizens concerned for peace in the home, schools, and world, Montessori-Living the Good Life, about the child in your arms and the child in your heart, is for everyone. The author goes where no one dares to go, explicating Maria’s concepts of the origins of war and peace and how we can make a difference.
