Good intro to Montessori

Enjoyed it, concise summary of Montessori, useful info. Retrospectively, would have been easier to read than listen to the audio.

A summary for other books

This book is mostly a summary for other parenting books, not much is new in it. It is a good refresher if you read the books referenced, or it is a good read if you haven't read any parenting books before

Fantastic Book and Audiobook! Highly recommend!

This is a fantastic book with great insights into how to incorporate Montessori teachings/principles into your own life for your toddler. It also really sold me on the idea of Montessori and the benefits our toddler/child and in turn we, the parents, can reap from this philosophy. A more thoughtful, conscious, and independent child is more likely to make better decisions, work to solve their own problems, help put and be more considerate of themselves, the world and their role within it.

Great narrator performance! Better than other books I’ve listened to. I listened at 1.2x speed because it was just a touch slow for me.

I highly recommend this audiobook!

Unrealistic

The book sets an unrealistic environment where parents don’t face all the challenges of modern living. If you want to feel you’ve failed like a parent and all what you do is wrong read this book…

Great information but very irritating voice

Totally should have the bought the book instead. Lol.

The reader’s voice stressed me out as she was reading a little too fast, a little too forceful with her intonations like an angry condescending parent hahahahahaha!

Great content though!

Interesting book, best as guide not as audiobook

The content in the book is really valuable. the way it is presented might follow directly what is written in the book. As there are a lot of lists and headings, much is lost listening to several lists.
Other than that highly recommended to parents interested in Montessori approach to learning/living.

A Must Read for Anyone Who is a Parent or Educator

This book is tremendously useful for anyone looking to incorporate Montessori into his/her home and life, anyone who wants to parent effectively and educators who want the best outcomes for all of their students. It clearly outlines how to shift your mindset and parenting, how to set up your home to include your children as equal members of your household and how to raise intelligent, focused, happy and compassionate human beings. A life changer.

A good book with a lot of ideas

Overall I liked it. The author has a lot of good ideas for communicating/teaching kids. I don’t agree with using a Montessori approach for older kids (I went to a Montessori school and had a lot of catch-up to do when I switched to a regular school) but it seems like a very good idea for toddlers.

Exactly what I needed

A fabulous and a functional book that helped me feel confident that I understood the practical and the philosophical implementation of the Montessori Method at the Toddler level. The audio performance was flawless. The only thing I wish was added were additional companion books for the other plains of development!

First audible book

I really enjoyed listening to this book it gave great examples and tips on how to raise an independent child. They also provide a PDF file. I do consider buying the physical book because of the pictures and graphs they don’t show but it’s efficient to listen to it on audible so you have read/heard the content at least once saves time and you can always go back for reference.

There is Hope!

I need to read this weekly. This book has helped with my temper and exhaustion. We visited a Montessori school near us after reading this book and I look forward to putting my 2 year old at their school in the future for a few years!

Wonderful book

Loved every page!
To raise a more independent, loved and curious toddler.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is struggling in some aspects and is looking forward to strengthening the bond between parents and their child and understand how children act in order to handle situations. It does not matters if your child is going to a traditional school ( because I get it, Montessori schools could be expensive) because you can put into practice all this ideas in your daily life.

Great content, but not good for audio

This book has great ideas, but most of them are in list form so it’s hard as an audio book. There’s a list you hear read off every few minutes. I’m going to go get the physical book instead.

great book

very helpful for understanding the mindset and needs of toddlers. it is slightly repetitive but I think that's a good thing. I will definitely listen again as my 1 year old goes through this tough growing period.
