Child of the World, Montessori Book for Age 3-12+ This book explains the meaning of life, how you are supposed to live it. It would be helpful to other people my age. If the young person does not want to read the chapter, The Young Adult, Age 12-18, then the parents should read it so they can help their son or daughter become a better person.

—Ryan Alcock, Age 13,
The Montessori Lyceum, Amsterdam

About the Author
Acclaim for Child of the World

Stephenson’s volume is a wonderful resource for parents seeking thoughtful, sound advice on raising well-grounded children in a chaotic world. Presenting Montessori principles in clear and eloquent prose, Stephenson’s legacy will be a tremendous service to generations of parents to come.
—Angeline Lillard, PhD, Professor of Psychology, U. of Virginia, author of Montessori, The Science behind the Genius

Imagine a Montessori text in your home library which guides your putting together a child’s corner in every room according to the same principles used by Montessori educators for more than a century. Activities are described to match your child’s precise ages and stages providing authentic environments for choice and stimulating engagement. This little book can change your life with its practical wisdom. It will help you create conditions favorable to peaceful coexistence.
—David Kahn, director of NAMTA
(North American Montessori Teachers Association)
