  1. Hello my name is Amy and I am in search of more montessori audio books! I have only been able to find The Montessori Method and listening to it be read in my earphones in my relaxed state of jogging I was able to understand and embrace my new love for the montessori method not like when I tried to read it on paperback. I am a new teacher at a montessori house and I would love to find any montessori material on audio book! Is it possible?
    Thank you very much,

  2. I’m currently reading this book for Infant/Toddler Montessori and I love it. I think it’s easy to read and understand. The author does a good job of explaining the importance of each experience. I’m learning more about child development from this book then I did in my undergrad work for Child Development!
