    1. Love it. Love it. Love it! For those of us who can't afford Montessori school, or who would rather be spending time at home WITH their child - this is an awesome resource. No special materials needed. The author considers what you have in the home and equates it with Montessori's own HOME made materials (she had to start somewhere too!). My daughter (2yrs) and son (16 months) love so many of these activities. Especially to do with textures and surprises. This book along with many others on the M [...]



    2. I would love to have a copy of these. So many fun/educational ideas to do with your child. Will have to recheck this book out of the library in a few more months when I can implement it more.


    3. I love all Maja pitamic books and this one is no different. this has a lot of activities you can add to your activity lists ey are very easy to put together . must refer for anyone getting started



    4. I really wish I had read this book when I got it; only the science section is truly of use to our family now. It is perfect for the parents of a 2-3 year old child. The activities are grouped into 5 sections (life, senses, language, numeracy, science) with easy to understand instructions. Most of the activities involve objects commonly found around the home (bowls, small toys, beans, spoons, etc.) and the book includes a handful of worksheets to copy. Like all Montessori activities, the author h [...]


    5. Probably the most useful Montessori-at-home book I have read. Step-by-step for each activity using mostly commonly available household objects like balls, blocks, string, baskets, dried foods, etc Activities are organized in order, so you know where to start, what to do next, and (at a surface level) why. If you are new to Montessori, don't start here. Read Maria Montessori's original works, with a notebook handy for all the ideas and thoughts you want to ponder later. If you love Montessori pri [...]


    6. This would be a nice book for a parent just learning about the Montessori method or one wanting to foster independence in their quickly developing toddler. The activity ideas are nothing new, and not something I couldn't just find on Pinterest. They appeared to be ordered by developmental level, but there were no age guidelines for each activity, which I think would have been helpful. The photos were vivid and detailed. The worksheets are a good idea, but I wouldn't use them. This definitely mor [...]


    7. Great presentation and layout of activities. It's inviting and easy to follow. Some of the activities are a bit common sense, but you gotta start somewhere. Good variation in age groups, could be used from ages 2-6, although she doesn't specify an age range for each activity which could have been useful. All the materials are something you'd already have laying around the house so preparation for each activity would be minimal. Good pictures and step by step instructions with suggestions to furt [...]


    8. I will revisit this book when my kids are older. Until then, I will continue to teach them things like brushing their teeth and washing their hands - suggested activities that I was already doing - and I will continue to not teach then how to shine shoes with shoe polish - a suggested activity that I would never consider. In the introduction, the author prided herself on not assigning ages to the activities, because all children develop at different rates. True, but a little guidance would have [...]


    9. I enjoyed some of the general ideas in this book, but I guess my parents must not have read this book when I was a child, as I did not feel confident doing this myself. Perhaps if I had more spare time I would try some of these ideas and be more consistent with my kid. Montessori techniques are great and I loved my own montessori experience. But I think it takes a lot more discipline, and you have to be a true believer, to integrate all these ideas, tools and activities into daily life. Better f [...]


    10. رغم ان هذا الكتاب أخذ شهرة واسعة الا انى لم اجده على المستوى الذى أردته ربما لان سقف توقعاتى كان اكثر مما ينبغىاحسست ان كل ما قرأته فى الكتاب كان عندى علم مسبق به و انتظرت ان يضيف لى جديداالكتاب يحتوى بعض انشطة المنتسورى التى يمكن تطبيقها فى المنزل بخامات بسيطةو التى يمكن ايج [...]


    11. Great book full of Montessori-inspired activities. My son loves flipping through it and picking out "games" to play. Many of them are still above his ability, as he's only 2.5, but he has enjoyed every one we've tried. I appreciated how this book uses Montessori as a starting point, but doesn't assume you have any of the fancy materials, and even suggests using plastic from time to time. It felt much more realistic than many Montessori books I've read in the past.


    12. A wonderful tool for parents with kids aged 2-5. My boys are not good sit-and-learn types (we've had a severe case of 'me-do-its' since they were 12m), so this was a great resource for me to be able to provide learning moments that took minimal instruction time and lots of hands-on experiential learning that was geared toward my independent-minded tots.


    13. Wonderful, easy learning activities to do with your child. I absolutely love that there's a section on life skills. Some of them were pretty simple, washing hands for example. But they also included simple tasks that had not occurred to me or clever ways of teaching. The activities are fun for the child and all the materials are things most people will have on hand already.


    14. This is an excellent book if you're interested in Montessori at all. I found it breaks things that as an adult I find simple down into a way that a small child can understand how to do it as well. My daughter is overjoyed that she can put her jacket on all by herself without any sort of struggle or help.


    15. This book has practical ideas for teaching children. With the exception of the science section I think most of the activities are common sense and come up naturally in the home, especially if you have more than one child. However, if you are finding yourself overwhelmed doing everything for your children, this will be helpful for giving you ideas of what children are capable of doing.


    16. Great ideas for activities to enhance learning. Although I'm not familiar with the Montessori teaching philosophies, I was inspired to create some fun activities for my son. This book is well organized and the instructions are easy to follow.


    17. The UK title is "I Can Do It" - just fyi. :-)I found this very basic, and with internet you will find many more activities at your disposal. However, it is nice to have a book to leaf through and look at. For the purpose of perusing, it was worth checking out of the library.


    18. Lots of Montessori activities to do in the home. There isn't a focus on age appropriate tasks in this book, but it is sort of obvious (and noted in pre-face) that chapters 1 and 2 are the foundation for the remaining 3 chapters. Tons of ideas in here. Love it!


    19. This book is great! Using clear instructions with everyday materials the author explains Montessori style activities with your child. Many of the activities were for kids older than my son, but it gives me a great reference point to start. Highly recommend!




    20. Excellent practical ideas for teachers and parents to engage children with fun learning activities that stimulate their senses, understanding of literacy, numbers and science.






    21. Great ideas for activities to do with your children. My children didn't often respond well, but I liked how the activities were presented and organized.
