Montessori at Home! Giveaway & Discount

Montessori at Home!

{disclaimer ~ this is a giveaway post, I was given a copy of the eBook to review and there are affiliate links in this post.}

If you have read my blog for awhile you know my passion for Montessori and have probably read posts from John Bowman, who writes the Montessori Minute for us every couple of months. Years ago he contacted me about his first edition of Montessori at Home! and we have been working together ever since.  John has recently released the 3rd edition of his already amazing book {if you already have an earlier edition, you get the update for free}.

I can’t believe he was able to make it even better, it was already amazing. If you are interested in home preschool at all, I HIGHLY recommend this resource.  There isn’t anything else out there like this, I truly wish I would have had it 7 years ago when I began! Even if you don’t want to implement a full Montessori experience {which we do not} this book is the best resource I have seen to pull everything in one place. I honestly can’t say enough about how wonderful it is. It is filled with pictures, ideas, links, and clear concise explanations.

If you are like me, you LOVE photographs in a book. The thing I love the most about this book is the outstanding use of examples through photographs.  Here are 4 of my favorite pages in the book, both filled with photos, and all of the blue writing you see links to awesome resources on the web!

Keep in mind these pages are directly from the 512 page eBook, so it’s just a small portion. Be sure to notice the cute girl on page 10!

This is written by John to share more of what is included in this amazing resource…
