As I begin this journey, my favorite Montessori resources are fresh in my mind and are in use on a daily basis. So, I believe I’ll give you a thoughtful and honest perspective. This page will evolve with my journey. I will update this page as I vet resources I use along the way.
There are many wonderful and resourceful books written on the Montessori Method. The first books listed are more philosophical and the latter books are more tangible for you in your home or school. Also check out this list of Montessori Books for parents.
