SPECIALS
In January 2018 Michael Olaf will close. The owners/creators, Jim and Susan Stephenson, who are now in their 70's will retire. Thank you for all of your support over the years. With very few exceptions (those things that are made locally, such as the slatted chair, topponcino, and a few other hard-to-find items) as each book, toy, or tool runs out it will not be reordered. Please keep this in mind for your school ordering, gift ordering, holiday ordering.
AGE 1-3 PLANTS and ANIMALS

"Solicitous care for living things affords satisfaction to one of the most lively instincts of the child's mind." (Maria Montessori, MD) At this age the child is naturally attracted to the colors, smells, sounds, of nature, and has a healthy interest in caring for and learning the names of plants and animals. Joining the adults in caring for houseplants, digging in the garden, feeding household pets, are all extremely satisfying to him. After real experience pictures and books provide an opportunity to communicate and learn more.

$6.00 $4.50 On Sale!
Black and white shell drawings are important because they lead the child to study the shell rather than just matching the color. These shell cards were drawn to match the particular shells in the shell collection (DP325), one each of 22 pictures, 4" x 5.5", cardstock. For a shell matching exercise, order two sets of the shell collection. To make 3-part reading cards, order two sets of the shell cards.
