    Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Alhamdulillah, selesai baca. Buku yang menyeronokkan! Koleksi pelbagai permainan yang boleh dibuat bersama si kecil anda. Saya sebenarnya tidak begitu mengambil kisah kaedah Montessori walaupun ia merupakan kaedah yang popular dalam dunia pendidikan awal kanak-kanak. Saya baca kerana ingin mengambil idea yang boleh dibuat bersama anak. Buku ini setebal 160 muka surat terbahagi kepada 6 bab iaitu exploring senses, coordinations, art and crafts, games and movement, language Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. Alhamdulillah, selesai baca. Buku yang menyeronokkan! Koleksi pelbagai permainan yang boleh dibuat bersama si kecil anda. Saya sebenarnya tidak begitu mengambil kisah kaedah Montessori walaupun ia merupakan kaedah yang popular dalam dunia pendidikan awal kanak-kanak. Saya baca kerana ingin mengambil idea yang boleh dibuat bersama anak. Buku ini setebal 160 muka surat terbahagi kepada 6 bab iaitu exploring senses, coordinations, art and crafts, games and movement, language and stories dan out and about. Setiap bab disertakan cadangan aktiviti dan umur yang bersesuaian. Saya kira saya akan buka lagi buku ini apabila anak yang kecil mencapai usia berkenaan. Tapi semua aktiviti insya Allah boleh diaplikasikan dengan anak usia setahun ke atas. Mungkin antara kita memang sudah biasa buat semua ini tapi kita tidak sedar rupa-rupanya ia memberi makna kepada anak-anak kecil ini. Lagipun bermain bersama anak kecil merupakan satu sunnah. Kita dapat mendidik anak-anak ini dengan adab dan ilmu selain meraikan fitrah mereka. Wallahualam. Buku 2/2017 (3-5 Januari 2017)

    I would divide the ideas in this book into three categories: *Pshaw ... I could have thought of that or I used to play that as a kid *Meh ... That could be fun or it could be boring. *Wowza ... What a fun/cool idea! I can't wait until my baby is older than 2 months so I can try that. It's not much text and easy to flip through in an evening.

    Good games and I’m not sure why I didn’t get into it more — maybe it was the graphics/layout, or maybe it’s just reading versus seeing games being demonstrated, not a fault of the book itself? Regardless had a hard time getting into it even though the material is what I was after.

    Great for babies, one year olds. Not so much Montessori as just fun things like games, making a scarecrow, treasure map, etc.

    This was another excellent resource for specific activities to do with your child. I should warn you, it says there are activities for babies, but in reality it's for children that are a year or more. She gives a nice little timeline and description of the development you can expect for each year of the child's life up until about four years. The ideas are more Montessori-inspired than they are strictly Montessori, but they are fun and easy to put together and execute.

    The Quick & Easy Review: This book is great. Grab it at the library if you want to take a spin through it, but I’d highly recommend just grabbing an inexpensive used copy from Amazon. It’ll be one of the best $1 purchase you’ve made in a long time. (Talk about a great “Montessori dollar menu” item!)

    A neat little book of activities and ideas. Some are pretty common, like "I Spy," but I'd forgotten about many of these activities and this book serves as a nice reference. My favorites: "Advanced Target Ball" and "Sticky the Squirrel." A neat little book of activities and ideas.

    I didn't care for the lay-out of this book and none of the activities were new (or all that interesting) to me. Although, when we give Odin a cup made of glass to drink his milk out of at dinner, we call it "going Montessori" so what do I know?

    This book is literally the opposite of my parenting philosophy: parent-directed learning, learning artificial things we are told are important to know rather than about the real life you live....

    Jenn's review got me reminiscing about good kid games...wonder if any of the ones I used to play were Montessori-worthy? Jenn's review got me reminiscing about good kid games...wonder if any of the ones I used to play were Montessori-worthy?

    I thought this was a superior book of suggested activities for babies and toddlers from a Montessori perspective - I'm considering buying the book.

    This book had lots of ideas, although not so many new ones for my little boy at 20 months. I'm going to check this out more as he gets older. This book had lots of ideas, although not so many new ones for my little boy at 20 months. I'm going to check this out more as he gets older.
