  The Joyful Child

If you are interested in the Montessori method I highly recommend The Joyful Child.  It explains how Dr. Maria Montessori first started in her approach to learning along with why implementing it in the first three years of life is so crucial.  It also helps by explaining Dr. Maria Montessori's thinking when she started doing certain things.  If you have any questions about the Montessori philosophy, this book will answer them!
