AID TO LIFE, Montessori Beyond the Classroom
In "Aid to Life, Montessori Beyond the Classroom," the author shares stories based on fifty years of Montessori work in thirty countries, first as a teacher of children from 2-18 in Montessori environments, then discovering ways to use Montessori principles in a variety of other situations—all aimed at inspiring, and providing practical ideas, to parents and other educators today. Here are some examples of her stories:

RESOURCES AND BOOKS
|As a politician concerned about education as the main pillar for a future better world, I have found what I was looking for in the Montessori philosophy. I have read all of the author’s books and articles and have found inspiration both as a father and politician. This book meets the needs of parents. It answers so many questions and we will translate it into Romanian.
—Catalin Ivan, Former Member of the European Parliament,
The Committee for Education
This is a wonderful book about Montessori and how it's being used in many countries, from Peru to Morocco, Nepal and beyond. I have told several people that they absolutely should read it.
|It is difficult to raise the child in fast changing and overloaded with information world of ours. This book will change your life and your child’s life. Susan always finds the way to explain complex yet essential understandings of human life—the importance of unconditional love, service, intelligence, and true joy—in such a simple yet glorious way. This book explains the unlimited possibilities that Montessori philosophy offers to humankind. Thank you for bringing this precious book to the world and helping many to find and maintain simple joy and meaning in our lives.
—Tsolmon Namkhainyam, Mother, Environmental Scientist, Head of the AMI Montessori Affiliate in Mongolia
|Susan is a living inspiration, her life experience, her wisdom and her loving kindness, which she easily transmits to everyone in her talks and books. The whole book is a jewel, full of wisdom and practical advice. The chapters on self-esteem for children, and how to use the Montessori ideas at home, and parents modeling, are truly beautiful and useful, not only for parents, but also for anyone interested in human development, and in fostering respect and care for nature, and understanding and compassion toward others.
—Juan Sebastián Hoyos, Deputy Head, Gimnasio Moderno, Bogota, Colombia. A school inspired by the founder’s friendship with Maria Montessori and her son Mario.
