What you should know about your child

By Maria Montessori

Moved by the holistic view of child development presented in the Montessori course, Anthony Gnanaprakasam, a student of Dr. Montessori from Sri Lanka, edited her lectures into a classic volume that offers an overview of child development. In the Preface Dr. Montessori acknowledges his important contribution in disseminating the core ideas. Gnanaprakasam discusses the problems of education and the need to recognise the nurturing of creativity as one of the fundamental goals of education.  The book offers the modern reader a clear interpretation of Dr. Montessori's social vision and educational principles in simple and direct prose.
