First of all I credit the wisdom found in these books to my extraordinary 0-3, 3-6, and 6-12 Montessori teacher trainers. It is due to this training that I had successful and joyful teaching experiences of human beings from birth through age 17, at home and in classrooms. All of my writing, and work as a consultant, oral examiner for teacher training courses, and speaker, is based on this experience.

Secondly I credit the people in the 32 countries where I have done Montessori work (and even more countries where these books are being translated). This is where I learn to understand the value and potential of Montessori, each time from a new perspective.

I have had the honor of meeting Susan in Romania. Since then I have read all of her books and articles and found inspiration both as a father and politician –Catalin Ivan, Former Member of the European Parliament, The Committee for Education

Our main purpose in life is to find happiness, and helping others is a sure way to fulfill this purpose. Montessori is wonderful in this way. —The Dalai Lama, at a meeting with the author in Sikkim in 2010

These simple yet profound books, each approaching authentic Montessori principles and practice from a unique perspective, lead parents and other educators to understand and meet the needs of human beings. They have been instrumental in introducing Montessori ideas in several countries, are often the first Montessori books translated into other languages as they prepare one for understanding Montessori's own writings.
(The words of many people around the world)

Today I received the full set of Susan Stephenson's books.

Thank you Ms Susan for all you have done and are doing for education. Your books are so simple, intimate, inspiring, and easy to understand. "The Joyful Child" has been translated into Vietnamese and it is ready for our "1,000,000 Joyful Babies project.
