The Montessori manual for teachers and parents by Dorothy Canfield Fisher( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is now a year since the publication of "The Montessori Mother," a year which has brought to the author of that volume a great mass of correspondence and innumerable personal interviews with American mothers interested in the new ideas about the education of young children. This first-hand experience with a wide circle of searchers for information has shown me the need, in the case of mothers untrained in educational methods, of a more concrete and definite and less philosophical presentation of the ideas of the great Italian teacher. This unpretentious manual is designed to meet that need and to be used by mothers of young children. It is also hoped that teachers will receive valuable hits from the suggestions in its pages, which their greater experience and professional training will enable them to expand into school-room exercises. - Foreword
