Maria grew up in Italy at a time when girls didn't receive an equal education to boys. But Maria's mother was supportive of her dreams, and Maria went on to study medicine. She later became an early childhood expert — founding schools with her revolutionary educational theories and changing the lives of many children. Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle as you read to them the engaging story of this fascinating educator and innovator, and will also enjoy exploring the stylish and quirky illustrations of this sturdy board book on their own.
The My First - Little People, BIG DREAMS series takes the biographies from the popular Little People, BIG DREAMS picture book series and adapts them for younger readers. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream!
This is the simplified board book version of Montessori's story; for the picture book for ages 5 to 8, check out Maria Montessori (Little People, Big Dreams).
