Synopses & Reviews
These unique board books bring the popular Montessori pedagogy to trade book form for the first time. Using materials and methods common to Montessori classrooms, these interactive board books immerse young children in an aesthetically rich learning experience, while providing parents and caregivers with carefully crafted language to encourage understanding.
This book follows the Montessori method by introducing the numbers 1 to 10 first as quantities to count before showing them as numerals. Cumulative red and blue tabs based on the counting rods found in Montessori classrooms help readers conceptualize quantities. Groupings of beautifully stylized illustrations provide objects to count before readers encounter textured numerals to trace with their fingers.

With imaginative photographic designs, simple word labels, and stimulating questions, these are the perfect first word and counting board books for parents and toddlers to share. The books cover all the most popular preschool subjects-such as vehicles, animals, and colors-and each section is accessible by means of a helpful picture tab visible from anywhere in the book.
