The most recommended Montessori at home DVD - Edison's Day

Edison's Day
If you have been following you will know that I have been watching a few Montessori in the home DVDs. There is and has always been one stand out. Edison's Day. Edison is 20 months old and the DVD follows him for one day. It is perfect. It is as Montessori as possible. Both of Edison's parents are Montessori trained, keep this in mind for perspective. There are so many great ideas featured, mostly aimed at independence but also at nurturing the child's spirit. Being in a visual (and audio) format everything presented is so practical, you can see how Edison does it or how his parents present it. You can see his home and how he moves and how he plays. It really is a brilliant example that we can all aspire to.
If you are interested in viewing Edison's Day I suggest contacting your local Montessori school or community group (preschool, playgroup etc). I believe that many groups keep this in their parent's library. Edison's Day is not available to view online.
