This book is required reading for anyone considering Montessori for young children, but it would greatly benefit from a more modern translation. This version was translated in 1958 and is an awkward read, even if you can get past the use of the word 'psychic' instead of 'psychological'.

This is a worthless scan of the original book. Opening page says: 'this book was drenched" (???) All through the book the page header ('The absorbent mind') is repeated in the middle of the pages. I guess you get what you paid for :( Actually I got even less. They gave me sh*t, spend my time and got my cc and personal info.
