book review: “How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way “

How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori WayHow to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way by Tim Seldin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

the very first reason why i read this book is because i’m curious with the montessori method.

it started when i’m surveying pre school for my baby. 3 eligible private schools in my surrounding use montessori method. i managed to survey 2 of them and i’m interesting with the class room situation which is very much different with a normal class room. instead of rows of neat table and chair, i found some cabinets with a lot of props and toys.

by reading this book, i come to an understanding that the basic principle of montessori is to treat your kid not as a helpless little child, but to treat them as a little adult. that’s why in montessori method, kids are encouraged to learn about basic life skill since early stage of their lifes. and parents/teacher should facilitate this learning process by adjusting the environment to suit the kids.

the book itself is very attractive with full colour pages, a lot of pictures and lots of great ideas.

i reccommend this book to all parents who would like to have another point of view in raising their child. happy reading!! đŸ™‚
