Here are the recommended books to start with the Montessori education.
I read all those books and they are all very helpful for parents with children under 6.
How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way: first book I read when my daughter was 6 months old. I reviewed the toys I was giving her, simplifying everything around her. Beautiful pictures and activities to do for older children too.
Montessori from the Start
Considered as the bible to understand Maria Montessori education (without reading Maria Montessori herself), easy to read too and mainly for children under 3.
Learning Together: What Montessori Can Offer Your Family
Written by the Montessori Centre International, UK. It’s especially written for parents too. Very practical too to help you with how to set up your house the Montessori way.
Montessori Read & Write: A parent’s guide to literacy for children
This one is great for children aged 2 to 6, tips to help with reading, sound recognition, learn the phonetic way and all activities can be done/created easily at home.
Child’s Play: Montessori Games and Activities for Your Baby and Toddler of Pitamic, Maja on 25 July 2008
Written by a very experienced Montessori teacher, easy to do at home activities for your baby and toddler.
And of course, if you want to read Maria Montessori herself, start with these ones:
(make sure you read a Clio edition, it’s a better traduction and the traduction is really important as some translation from Italian to English were rubbish the ideas badly understood, AMI recommends the Clio publication)
By Maria Montessori The Absorbent Mind (The Clio Montessori series) (New edition) [Paperback]
The Discovery of the Child (The Clio Montessori Series, Vol.2)
Secret of Childhood
