Montessori Friendly Books We're Reading in March and April

As always, we've been busy reading so many good books around here! Since winter hung around longer than we expected, these books have been a life saver on cold and snowy afternoons. This month, I thought I would share these a bit differently, and break them up by those enjoyed by Nora (3), Henry (7), and Augustus (17 months). So, here's what we've been reading! 

Montessori Toddler Books

These are the books from the library that Gus was enjoying these months.

Music Is . . .  This was my favorite! 

Montessori Preschooler Books

I put most of the books in Nora's spot but this isn't to say that Henry didn't enjoy them too. Many would be appropriate for a slightly older audience, and some would appeal more to a younger audience as well. Henry would listen or read some books plenty too, but they would also keep Nora's interest and attention. Basically, these books were the most flexible on age.

Montessori Elementary Books

Henry has fewer books in his section because he isn't reading as many picture books any more. He is starting to turn his attention to chapter books and comic type books. Many of those are not Montessori friendly, and are very specific to his individual interests so I haven't featured them here. 

As a newer reader, I follow his lead in the books that will get him to read, so I'm not as picky about content. Also as a child in the second plane of development, fantasy is appropriate. These picture books, however, we're for Henry. They have longer stories, more detailed information, or deal with themes that are more difficult for younger children (parental death, for example). Nora may have been around when we were reading them, but the books weren't meant for her.
