Based on the proven Montessori teaching method, Montessori: Seed Work introduces young readers to the plant life cycle, starting with seeds before moving on to each phase as the plant grows. Elements on each page are textured for greater interactivity, and the book has two fun gatefolds-one that flips down to reveal a plant's roots, and another that folds out to show a sunflower following the sun.
Written by Bobby George, cofounder of the Baan Dek Montessori, the Montessori series introduces young readers to key concepts by beginning with the concrete and moving to the abstract. With each book, young readers absorb age-appropriate information and gain a better understanding of the world around them.
Bobby George is a lifelong student and entrepreneur, with a PhD in philosophy. Alongside June George, he founded Baan Dek-the first Montessori school in South Dakota. Bobby and June both live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Alyssa Nassner is an illustrator and hand letterer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
