I am a big fan of this woman and what she achieved for children around the world. She definitely changed and added new ways to teaching to helping kids learn. And so I had to read this book as I have loved others in the same series.
In this one we get a quick look at Maria’s life from childhood to when she is older and has achieved many things. We see how this girl is strong-willed, eager to study but in her way, and how she pushed through to get where she wanted. I loved that she did all those things for the children and it made me even more happy seeing it all work out. See those kids soak up all they are learning. Because learning isn’t about pushing words and numbers into your head, it is also about making it fun. To make it a game.
It is a very basic introduction into this woman’s life and what she achieved, but I feel that the author/illustrator both conveyed the most important things.
The art was pretty nice.
All in all, if you want to know more about Maria Montessori be sure to check out this picture book.
