REVIEW by Jessica Langford
Co-owns the Montessori Child Store in Adelaide, South Australia with her husband. Jessica was a "Montessori child" herself and is now a Montessori teacher and Montessori retailer.
The book is fantastic! I've been reading through it today and I love it. I think you have absolutely identified some of the most relevant topics for parents. Isn't it funny that we are on opposite sides of the world but the feedback and questions from parents are still the same (I have a parent-handout for my pre-school called 'FAQs about Montessori' and several of them cover the topics you've addressed like what it really means when children announce "I'm bored", "I've done everything" and the prime suspect: "What did you do today?" - "Nothing"). Your writing style is fantastic - really accessible but also very authentic.
