Welcome Readers :)

Welcome readers !
Thank you for visiting 'Inside the child' and hope that your time spend reading my blog is educational. It includes my thoughts and approach to a child, based on the Montessori educational philosophy that emphasize on independence, freedom within limits and learning concepts of working with materials hands-on, rather than by direct instructions.

My favorite quote by Dr. Maria Montessori “There is in every child a painstaking teacher, so skillful that he obtains identical results in all children in all parts of the world. The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!”
As a Children's House Montessori teacher, it is my pleasure to share my experience with children of ages 2 1/2 - 7 yrs old, and how small little things makes a big difference. Enjoy reading. Thank you.

Books for children

Some people say that a good book is your best friend. I think a good book is a gateway to the world. Sitting in one corner of the library we can see the world, travel in our imaginations. Aha ! Imaginations ! Now, it is our very big responsibility to guide and direct our child's imagination. Montessori philosophy abstains every child from a fantasy world. For some people this could sound contradictory but I have explained this in my next blog. Reason behind is that the child's brain is growing at a fast speed, it's absorbing knowledge from the environment. For him to serve the community, family and be a strong independent person it's important to know facts. Facts that can be understood with a logical reasoning. Hm, wonder if fairy tales give some logical reasoning to their stories ! So, we have to enlighten a child's brain, sooth his heart with the facts of the world. Our world which is so beautiful. It has flowers, waterfalls, mountains, animals, family and friends. Aha ! Our beautiful world ! 

Below is the list of books which can reflect the facts and beauty of the life and are perfect for a child.
