This board book, along with its companion, Number Work, brings popular Montessori pedagogy into book format for the first time. Montessori students learn to write before they learn to read, so the process is driven by their own words and thoughts before those of others. Letters are taught first as sounds (instead of names) and alphabet tiles encourage children to trace each letter with their finger. This book honours that tradition by emulating the standard classroom material with touchable, traceable letters and providing parents or caregivers the Montessori directed language to encourage understanding. The alphabet is introduced by shape (rather than in standard alphabetical order) and by sound (rather than name), providing young children with an alternative way, a Montessori way , to learn their letters.

Promotional Information

There are currently no other books in the children's market called "Montessori".; There are an estimated 7,000 certified Montessori schools worldwide and numerous more that use the name and select tenets.; While alphabet board books are the mainstay of children's concept shelves, none before have taught the sound before the letter, nor grouped letters by shape rather than alpha order.; Features gritty sandpaper finish for tactile tracing.

About the Author

The scientific pedagogy of Maria Montessori informed a revolution in education that continues today, 100 years later. Montessori schools focus on hands on learning with specifically designed materials that allow students to understand the world through methodical and self directed work. According to Montessori, play is work and the explorations of children are what ultimately lead to their learning and understanding. Bobby George is a life long student and entrepreneur. A PhD candidate in philosophy, Bobby and his wife, June, founded and run a Montessori school in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the first Montessori school in the state. They also own and operate Montessorium, a Montessori app company, as well as June Books, a publishing venture dedicated to Montessori inspired storybooks.
