Product description

Review

“This graceful guide to parenting toddlers within the Montessori educational philosophy teaches adults with the same spirit of gentleness, presenting a coherent, attractive system while simultaneously breaking its instruction down into small, understandable chunks that seem reasonable to master.”  —Publishers Weekly

With every page chock-full of plans for how to make one’s home a haven for a youngster’s intellectual and emotional growth, this valuable manual fills a gap on a topic not as frequently addressed in the literature on toddler development.” —Library Journal

" This is a down-to-earth, accessible book that makes Montessori at home doable. She provides clear ideas for discipline and parenting, and it’s written in a friendly, parent-to-parent way." —Book Riot

Y’all. So I ordered the book “The Montessori Toddler” on amazon last week and not to be dramatic or anything, but it changed my life.

I’m getting rid of *most* of the plastic and junk toys and being mindful of what I set out for my kids. I’ve noticed a huge difference in their play since making these changes, and I’m a believer in less is more!

I’m a mom who goes through toys almost every month and will throw stuff away left and right. I can’t believe how much was back in this area. I dumped all of the storage bins out so I could really see what I was working with.

I’m kind of embarrassed at the ridiculousness of toys that we had, but I know I’m not the only one whose house looks like this.

If you’re a parent to a toddler or are expecting a baby, I urge you to buy this book. I wish I would’ve discovered it back before I had any kids!

This play area in our living room is still a work in progress, but I couldn’t wait to share. I’ve actually changed some things since taking this “after” photo.

Reviewed in the United States on 11 May 2019
This book is fantastic! I bought this book looking for more ways to incorporate Montessori philosophies with my toddler at home. What I wasn't expecting was all the incredible parenting advice that came with this book. It is like an expanded version of "How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way" (Tim Seldin) specific for toddlers that meets a summarized version of "Positive Discipline: The First Three Years" (Jane Nelsen) with a layout that makes reading it fly by. Not to mention the gorgeous photography throughout.

The author's charts in the back of the book are SO helpful! She has an "Instead of this, say that" section as well as a list of suggestions of activities for your child broken down by age. I will frequently be referencing back to both of these charts. I also loved all the books she referenced to throughout her book. The ones I haven't already read sounded so intriguing that I added them to my to-be-read list. Clearly my parenting style is very in line with the author's so I found it easy to love this book.

And finally, the chapter on "Putting it into Practice" was a gold mine. The author tackles subjects like feeding, sleeping, toileting, pacifiers, siblings, brushing teeth, getting dressed, sharing, hiting, biting, throwing, clingy stages, screen time, and even how to help build skills for an introverted toddler. There were times when I wanted more from the author on a specific topic, but in those times she generally referenced further reading which works well for me since I enjoy reading. She gives such a great over-view of each topic!

All in all, this book is excellent! I would highly recommend it for any parent or caregiver of toddlers.

Reviewed in the United States on 29 March 2019
i really love this book. it has everything you need for new parents and parents of toddlers.

it teaches you the montessori way of doing things at school and it inspires me to use the ideas at home when they are not at school, even if they don't go to a montessori school during the day.

it also has tips for parents towards the back of the book, which i appreciated very much. This book is not just about toddlers but its for the parents of toddlers as well. Every new and current parent can use the insights in this book if they want to have ideas on how to improve or change the way they parent. You really need to have an open mind about it going in or else there's no need.

it has book recommendations too and diff books mentioned throughout the book that has a brief tip on what that book is teaching. which is great because you don't need to be reading all the diff parenting books.
