Overview


These unique board books bring the popular Montessori pedagogy to trade book form for the first time. Using materials and methods common to Montessori classrooms, these interactive board books immerse young children in an aesthetically rich learning experience, while providing parents and caregivers with carefully crafted language to encourage understanding.
This book follows the Montessori method by introducing the numbers 1 to 10 first as quantities to count before showing them as numerals. Cumulative red and blue tabs based on the counting rods found in Montessori classrooms help readers conceptualize quantities. Groupings of beautifully stylized illustrations provide objects to count before readers encounter textured numerals to trace with their fingers.

Praise for Montessori: Number Work
“Nicely illustrated, this tall, distinctive board book is a useful resource for parents and teachers.”
Booklist

"The combination of phonetics and simple retro illustration makes for an excellent entree into pre-literacy."
The Wall Street Journal

I was very disappointed and returned this book!  The numerals do not match the number of objects on the facing page.  Adults may understand to count three objects and turn the page for the number 3 -- but most readers, children and adults, will see the number 3 and a facing page of four objects and be very confused. There are many wonderful books that encourage counting and number recognition.  I don't think this is one of them.  Choose another book  to teach numbers to little ones!
