In response to the crisis in American education, more than five thousand public and private schools across the nation have adopted the timeless Montessori Method of teaching, of which this book is the cornerstone. Written by the women whose name is synonymous worldwide with child development theory, The Absorbent Mind takes its title from the phrase that the inspired Italian doctor coined to characterize the child's most crucial developmental stage: the first six years.

A new foreword by John Chattin-McNichols, Ph.D., President of the American Montessori Society, places this classic book in a contemporary context, offering an intelligent discussion of current thinking in child education.

This is a good read during pregnancy (its a good read as a new mom too, but you wont have time to read then!!) it will make you marvel at your newborn's capability. maria montessori is a medical doctor who studied philosophy and her intelligence and philosophical approach are a joy to read (not at all boring).
