Summary

The Absorbent Mind was Maria Montessori's most in-depth work on her educational theory, based on decades of scientific observation of children. Her view on children and their absorbent minds was a landmark departure from the educational model at the time. This book helped start a revolution in education. Since this book first appeared there have been both cognitive and neurological studies that have confirmed what Maria Montessori knew decades ago.

Interesting...But for 30 hours of American accent.

I was advised to read this as I've been observing in a Montessori School. I'm sold on a lot of the ideas. But the accent of tbe reader grated a little after a while... I'm British.

Could another version not be made for English people?

a very informative book

The narrator was clear and talking with a good speed. I think this book is a must read for everyone who is going to become a parent.

Different from hard copy

I enjoyed listening to this book. However, this edition is different from the hard copy and from the kindle edition I have of the same title.
