The Child is the Teacher
– A Life of Maria Montessori
By Cristina De Stefano
This authorized biography looks at Maria Montessori’s unpublished diaries and letters. At a time when women were expected to be wives and mothers rather than pursue careers, she followed her own path, studying medicine and refusing to marry. The biggest struggle was deciding whether to have a child out of wedlock and keep her job at the hospital. In response to her childhood learning disabilities, she felt inspired to combine her healthcare background and drive for social change. Montessori quickly became well-known all over Europe and the U.S. by the 1910s. Age – Teen-Adult Published by Other Press, Pages: 368 Price $36.99 CDN
