Learn geography the Montessori way!

Based on the proven Montessori teaching method, Montessori: Map Work introduces young readers to geography by first introducing the Earth as a globe of land and water, and then inviting readers to learn each of the continents by shape, name, and location. Each continent is textured for readers to trace, and modes of transportation between each build spatial context. Each continent also features native animals for further relevant associations.

Written by Bobby and June George, founders of the Baan Dek Montessori School, the Montessori series introduces young readers to key concepts by beginning with the concrete and moving to the abstract. With each book, young readers absorb age-appropriate information and gain a better understanding of the world around them.


"This ingeniously designed book follows the "Montessori way" of teaching children concrete concepts in an accessible way." —School Library Journal
