Maria Montessori's pedagogical project from 0 to 3 years
Grazia Honegger Fresco
All except sold
A direct student of Maria Montessori and Adele Costa Gnocchi, Grazia Honegger Fresco has had a long experience of working both with young and elder children, as well as with parents, educators and teachers.
Some books are born with the specific intent of leaving a trace as complete and orderly as possible of an educational thought that, after a while, runs the risk of being spread by synthesis and slogans.
This book was created with the intention of reconstructing the work of Adele Costa Gnocchi who was a faithful, acute and brilliant interpreter of Maria Montessori. It collects memories and precise indications of her creative work and deliberately focuses on the first three years, offering readers the opportunity to cross the concept of education from birth as a support to life. Along this inspiration Adele Costa Gnocchi worked and experimented on Maria Montessori's footsteps.
Collecting experiences that can still be experienced today, this book ainms to support the child's right to "respect", making sure that this is not an empty word of convenience and correctly setting a Montessori educational approach right from pregnancy.
A book for educators, parents, teachers fascinated by the possibility of a pedagogical project based on observation, on trust in the natural forces of children and young people, in an environment that inspires freedom, without desks, prizes, nor marks, as Montessori claimed.
Not from saying to doing, but from doing to reflecting, from deducing to trying again, as Maria Montessori recommended.
An uncomfortable way because it does not allow recipes, but an honest way, a source of well-being for children and adults.
This book is a synthesis and a provocation for anyone who wants and needs to start from scratch educating children in the respect for what they are rather than for how we would like them to be.
