Some beautiful children’s books

Looking for some book inspiration? Here are some books we have at home and just love. Most of these come highly recommended by other Montessori parents as great books to have on your shelves at home.

Home by carson ellis

“Home might be a house in the country, an apartment in the city, or even a shoe. Home may be on the road or the sea, in the realm of myth, or in the artist s own studio. A meditation on the concept of home and a visual treat that invites many return visits, this loving look at the places where people live.”


“With simple, graphic illustrations sure to appeal to even the youngest of children, this smart exploration of the fascinating theme of before and after will please the most discerning adult readers, too.”

Actual size

“In this visually stunning book, seeing is believing as Steve Jenkins illustrates animals both large and small at ACTUAL SIZE.”

A seed is sleepy

“Poetic in voice and elegant in design, the book introduces children to a fascinating array of seed and plant facts, making it a guide that is equally at home being read on a parent’s lap as in a classroom reading circle.”

A rock is lively

“A gorgeous and informative introduction to the fascinating world of rocks.”

A Butterfly is Patient

“An incredible variety of butterflies are celebrated here in all of their beauty and wonder, from the tiny Arian Small Blue to the grand Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing.”

A Nest is Noisy

“Poetic in voice and elegant in design, this carefully researched book introduces children to a captivating array of nest facts and will spark the imaginations of children whether in a classroom reading circle or on a parent’s lap.”

An Egg is Quiet

“A beautifully simple introduction to eggs of all kinds; from tiny hummingbird eggs to giant ostrich eggs, from fossilised dinosaur eggs to gooey fish eggs, it’s an entirely fresh look at the familiar”.
