The Absorbent Mind
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
In response to the crisis in American education, more than five thousand public and private schools across the nation have adopted the timeless Montessori Method of teaching, of which this book is the cornerstone. Written by the woman whose name is synonymous worldwide with child development theory, The Absorbent Mind takes its title from the phrase that the inspired Italian doctor coined to characterize the child's most crucial developmental stage, the first six years.
"Startling insights . . . she is an inspiring teacher . . . educators of all persuasions will find her book alive with ideas."
