Observation - Secret of Childhood



Dr. Montessori describes her discoveries in her own words in the work The Secret of Childhood in the chapter entitled, “Observations and Discoveries.” She describes the origin of the concepts of freedom for repetition and free choice, the origin of the silence activity, dignity, spontaneous discipline, reading and writing, and others.

Get the older versions if possible, they are substantially longer, including her entire intended text (new versions have sadly removed a great deal, especially in regards to the spiritual nature of the child).
