Publisher's Summary

Italian doctor and educator Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was the first woman to graduate from the University of Rome Medical School. This masterpiece of educational philosophy is still relevant today, as the author explains to parents and teachers how to free a child through its own efforts. First published in English in 1912, these tried and trusted methods have proved their worth for more than a hundred years. Emphasizing the individuality of the child in order to nurture the joy of learning, Montessori avoids rote memorization and drilling, encouraging abstract thinking with the aim of fulfilling a child's emotional, physical, and intellectual potential.

Hard to follow the narrator

The style of narration was the worst I’ve heard. The narrator seems to have never read the book and is monotone with a constant repetition of one melodic pattern. The content was of this book and the very wordy and lengthy sentences combined with the narration were tough to get through. However, I slowed down the speed and suffered through the narration because I find Maria Montessori’s message and work fascinating.

Very Digital Voice - Cannot conclude its a human

This book is Gold Standard for Educators however I cannot conclude that these are actually read by human being... Its like Siri reading a book to you - only this Siri has training wheels on...
I could not hear the book for more than 10 minutes without switching off because of the digital voice...there is no feel no touch no expression - basically very robotic
