About the Book
As with all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. When learning geography, students first develop an understanding that the earth is a round globe, made up of land and water. They then manipulate the shape of each continent before addressing its name and location. Montessori: Map Work introduces readers to the seven continents via textured edges to trace with their fingers, modes of transportation between each one for spatial context, and illustrated native animals for relevant and meaningful associations. Young children will absorb the age-appropriate geography and gain a better sense of their place in the world.

My Take on the Book
This book provides a unique way for a you and your young child to learn about the continents and some of the unique aspects of each. The book is very tactile and visual and allows the child to explore completely. The book was fun, engaging and a quick read, but by the end your child will be asking you to go back to the beginning to experience the book yet again!
