Greetings from Baan Dek! Hope everyone is having a joyous Summer. We thought we'd take this opportunity to introduce our fourth book in our Montessori series from Abrams Appleseed. It's called, Montessori: Map Work, and it just might be our favorite. It's now available to order from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Here's a little bit more 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.
We sincerely hope you enjoy. It was so much fun to put together.
