Trevor Eissler, author of Montessori Madness, recently wrote a review of Intro to Letters. As a Montessori parent, and an advocate for children, his mission is simple. He wants to introduce new families to the Montessori revolution in education. Here is what he had to say about our latest app.
"Peaceful. Purposeful. This app gives parents and children a taste of two of the qualities I love most about the Montessori method. The app does away with the cobwebs of whiz-bang flashiness, meaningless compliments, prizes, bonus points, and all the rest of the try-to-give-them-self-esteem silliness. Intro to Letters shows how Montessori allows children to be craftsmen."
Eissler continues, "Not only do my children enjoy working with this app (on Saturdays: the only day of the week we allow screen-time), but I have found it useful at parties and adult get-togethers to pull out the Intro to Letters and show other parents a bit about the Montessori method without coming on too strong with my enthusiasm for Montessori..."
Our vision for Montessorium is very much in line with Trevor Eissler. Check out this short introductory video of Trevor speaking on Montessori.
