16 Best Montessori Books For Toddlers Update 05/2022

Montessori Books For Toddlers

The Montessori toddler classroom is always full of great learning opportunities. The book corner is a great place for kids to spend a lot of time looking at illustrations and connecting them to their own lives. It’s important for kids to have books in their lives because they need them to learn new words and understand concepts that are part of their world.

However, the most important thing about books is that they give adults a chance to spend one-on-one time with the child. You and your child will have lots of fun together if you do this 15-minute thing every day. Find out what your child likes best, their favorite color, what scares them the most. We like books that show a wide range of ideas, shapes, and numbers in a way that is both realistic and easy to understand. I’d like to show you our collection of books for kids ages 1-3, or toddlers. I think they’re great for kids this age group. Many have thick cardboard pages that are great for little kids; many have realistic photos of objects, they are interactive, encourage creativity, and describe the world the child is a part of in simple terms.

The Big Book of First Words

In fact, this book is D’s favorite right now. Like “Where’s Waldo,” but a lot more kid-friendly and not as dizzying as that one is. Each page features a different scene such a kitchen or zoo, and on the right side of the page has images of objects or animals to find within the scene. It’s a little more difficult than Let’s Find Momo, which is her favorite thing to do. I think she likes that it’s a big board book.
