What is a Montessori Book?

Dr. Maria Montessori, over a century ago, founded the Montessori school of education, which is a child-focused school of education that encourages exploratory learning in a child. A Montessori Book is a play device for children that enables them to work independently to gain several skills like self-reliance, curiosity, and experimentation. 

The book becomes an independent interactive experience for a child. Reading a Montessori book is an experience based in reality. It enables a child to remain grounded in what is real with the Montessori materials while exploring what could be possible when changing the parts of the book around. The book helps a child develop skills needed in future real-world situations where cause and effect take place. 

When moving one animal to another page, your child has effectively changed the story. They are able to base their choices on the situation the characters of the book find themselves in and play around with how they make decisions. For example, will “Bob the Tiger” choose to go to the Safari’s waterhole or tree line? These are the decisions your child will have to make throughout the book. 

The product is a quiet baby book or a busy child book for ages from 1 to 4. In addition, the products have values regarding child development. Therefore, this toy is perfect for a variety of situations. Not only does the toy have benefits for parents when they can use the books to keep their child quiet, but the children might always have the opportunity to learn and see an object differently in the book at any time they look at it.
