A Few New Books on Our Shelves

I feel like I say this every time I write about children's books, but I love children's books. Like LOVE them. So, finding a few new titles to add to our collection is always fun for me and for my kids. Recently, I added a few new books to our home. 

A few new Montessori friendly book finds.

With welcoming a new baby, I knew that I would be spending a lot of time nursing and therefore a lot of time reading to my kids. Having a few new Montessori friendly books keeps us all a little more engaged in the process. So, here's what we recently added:

Toddler 

Little Humans - This is such a great book! The children represented are diverse, and the photography is beautiful. The text is simple but engaging.

Every Autumn Comes the Bear - Really simple look at a bear in autumn. The illustrations are beautiful, and this instantly has become a Gus favorite.

Autumn - This is a wordless picture book. The illustrations are gorgeous. My kids love these and were happy to add another season to our collection.

Children's House (3-6yo)

Fall Leaves - This book is stunning! It has simpler text that could be read only to a toddler, but also a selection of denser scientifically accurate text for older kids.

Everything You Need for a Treehouse - Really super cute. A tiny bit of fantasy in parts (just in the illustrations), but very lyrical text and beautiful images. All of the kids have loved this!

The Apple Cake - This is another one that all my kids have loved. It's a longer story, which is nice for a picture book, and has a really lovely message.

Elementary

Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip - Another longer story that both Nora and Henry really like. This one is fantasy based (with some slightly darker images) so I would recommend it for a 5-year-old+ who is ready for that level of abstraction.

Earth: By The Numbers - A nice little book to accompany the Montessori Great Lessons that gives nice information about the earth in a visually pleasing way. Book could also work for older preschool if your child is into geography/numbers.

Have you added any new Montessori friendly books to your collection lately? I'd love to hear about them!

I love this list!! We're always looking for new books our daughter will take off her shelf over and over again. I'm a new follower and look forward to learning more about the Montessori lifestyle. I've always been interested, but I haven't yet taken the time to purge our toys and truly change our activities. We move next month, so it seems like a perfect time to change it up!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
