Maria Montessori Sails To America: a private diary, 1913 – Maria Montessori
Dr. Maria Montessori’s diary from her first voyage to America at the end of 1913 covers a year of great importance both to her private and her professional life. In it, Maria Montessori examines the major changes that had taken place in her life that year and looks forward to what her visit to America might have in store for her and her work.
This fascinating diary demonstrates Maria Montessori’s powers of observation as she describes life on board with relish and wit. The diary also gives a rare insight into her budding relationship with her adolescent son Mario, who had come to live with her earlier that year.
Translated into English and introduced by Carolina Montessori, Maria’s great-granddaughter, this small book is an absolute must-have for anyone interested in Montessori’s life and career. This is the first time that Maria Montessori’s thoughts, feelings and impressions, written down by herself, have been published.
