Learn shapes the Montessori way!

Based on the proven Montessori teaching method, Montessori: Shape Work introduces young readers to shapes by identifying shapes by category (triangles, rounds, parallelograms, and polygons) and associated objects. Each shape is die-cut for readers to trace with their fingers and illustrated with a familiar object for relevancy.

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.
