Favorite Montessori at home Books

Our Favorite Montessori Books, Materials & Free Printables

In order to understand what Maria Montessori believed in her educational philosophy, I recommend reading The Montessori Method. This is where it all begins. 😉

How To Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way is a fun and inspirational book that is extremely helpful for parents.

I loved how much I learned from reading Teach Me to Do It Myself: Montessori Activities for You and Your Child. It taught me jus how much children are able to do on their own with just showing them, a little practice and room to let them do it.

Montessori from the Start: The Child at Home, from Birth to Age Three is also a must-have book, in my opinion. I learned how to set up our baby and toddler bedroom as well as the learning environment. 

When I read The Absorbent Mind, I was floored. Children are so amazing and this book definitely brings out facts about how children learn best and how their brains work.

I once co-led a book club and we read Montessori Today: A Comprehensive Approach to Education from Birth to Adulthood together. It was so fun discussing with others all the wonderful things this book teaches. It definitely gave me a vision of the Montessori Method as a lifetime deal, not just during childhood.

Favorite Montessori Materials

Our Favorite Montessori Books, Materials & Free Printables

I have been asked many times what Montessori materials I have and what companies I use to buy their materials. Here is my answer. I have used a few companies that are good, but for the quality and the best price, I love buying from Adena Montessori.

I haven’t had issues with their materials. Once, one of my orders came with doubles of some cards and when I called about some cards being doubled, but some were missing, the missing cards were mailed to me the next day. Their customer service is wonderful and easy to work with.

Adena Montessori‘s materials are great. They have so many of them! I first did a lot of research (back when my son was one year old) and for the price, I ordered their starter set and we loved it! We still use all of those materials. We have made several orders a year ever since.

In the main post picture, you can see some of our Adena Montessori materials on our shelves and in the picture above, you can see our beautiful geography cabinet. It houses our 6 wooden continent puzzle maps (there is no Antractica puzzle map), our 7 continents puzzle map, our flags map and our yardstick poster maps. You should get these for sure!

Most of Adena Montessori materials are between 50 and 80% off. I find that they are perfect for a homeschool setting. I use them for my two children. Their materials are shipped quickly and, in my experience, packed very well. Take a look at their website to see just how well-priced their materials are.

And now, for the free printables! I have come across many Montessori printables, but few are generous enough to offer free printables that are of excellent quality. Here is a list of some of my favorites. I split them into subjects to make it easier for you to find what you need. Enjoy the fact that they are absolutely and completely free. 😀
