GB015 The Joyful Child (birth-3 overview/catalog)
THE JOYFUL CHILD (Birth to Three Years)
This Montessori overview/catalog contains many ideas, informative pictures, and products related to the Montessori 0-3 program founded in Rome in 1947 and continuing around the world today. It is also valuable for the teacher or parent of children older than 3 years as many of the materials and ideas for the 3-6 child are introduced here. The author took her AMI (Association Montessori International) 3-6 Montessori training in London, England in 1970 and 0-3
training in Denver and Rome in 1990. She has read Dr. Montessori's books several times and selected essential information included here. These ideas, combined with what she learned teaching, include: setting up the environment
to prepare for the newborn, the development of movement and language, clothing, preparation for weaning and toilet learning, the development of self-esteem, selecting and organizing toys, the importance of concentration, music, art, sciences, and much more. THE JOYFUL CHILD has been useful as an introduction to Montessori in many countries, used as a study overview in teacher-training centers, and translated into several languages.
