This book is based on Dr. Maria Montessori's instructions for raising infants and toddlers. It is a comprehensive exploration of the first three years.
From the design of the baby's bedroom to the child-sized kitchen table, from diet and food preparation to clothing and movement, the authors provide guidance for the establishment of a beautiful and serviceable environment for babies and very young children.
They introduce concepts and tasks, taking into account childrens' ''sensitive periods'' for learning skills such as dressing themselves, food preparation, and toilet training.
A practical and useful guide to raising calm, competent, and confident children.
