Our Montessori library

A sample of our Montessori Library - those books we currently own.
  • Others have been loaned out, misplaced in moving, or lost in a small fire :( 
  • And the library, Montessori schools and homeschoolers are great resourcing for borrowing (just make sure you give them back! ;) )
  • Tip: if you know me IRL (in real life), and have one of my books and it's not listed here, I wouldn't mind having it back! I'll trade some fresh, homemade peanut-butter-chocolate fudge for it! hehehe
