      Any updates? October is. Ear to an end and haven’t heard anything about the free pdf or anything.

      Having issues on my end with making my payment. Have backed multiple Kickstarters before but since this one is collected out if the US my credit card keeps rejecting it. Any ideas for a work around?

      @Shirlene Ling Yes, a Montessori Baby one would be fun too. So happy to share about Montessori for Toddlers - I love working with this age group and their parents!

      @Emily Draper How lovely! It will be perfect timing for you. Thanks so much. Enjoy!

      @Rob Warner Thanks so much for supporting this project. And so happy to share my experience of Montessori at home. Can't wait to post it to you in February.

      Congratulations Simone! I've been anticipating to read your book and hope there will be a second one "The Montessori Baby" in the future as not much detailed information I can find elsewhere except from Tim Seldin's "How to Raise an Amazing Child the Montessori Way". Thank you for giving us the mothers on how to start guiding our toddlers the Montessori way. With blessings.

      Congrats Simone! I am so excited for the book to come out! I am a teacher in Canada and I have always had a passion for Maria Montessori's system and philosophies. Now that I just had my first baby 5 months ago, I can finally start implementing her methods into the upbringing of my son. I love how your book is aimed at toddlers cause this is exactly what we need and it's the perfect age to start introducing Montessori to children. Thank you for creating this!

      Congratulations Simone! Our daughter attends a Montessori nursery, so we're excited to be able to continue the same style of learning for her at home.

      @Till Schäfer There is a great book called Montessori Madness written by a Montessori parent. This may give you a better idea of what happens in a Montessori preschool, although there are less concrete examples as to how to implement at home. I think you would get value out of both - maybe buy The Montessori Toddler and read the bits that apply, then pass onto a friend with a toddler who might need help with toileting and sleeping :)

      Interesting someone brings this up. My daughter just turned four. Will this book still help me in dealing with everyday problems? I understand that the principles are valid throughout the childhood, but will the book help now?
      My daughter already attends a Montessori Kindergarten in germany and I was hoping to better understand their methods.
      Greetings from germany.

      @Stephen Dahlheimer Thanks for your message Stephen! Yes, I think there is still a lot of the book (probably around 70%) that would still be useful for a 3.5 year old.

      All the principles still apply regardless of age - I'm still using the same approach with my teenagers - but the examples in the book are toddler aged ;)

      Thanks for backing the project. I hope you enjoy it. And perhaps can then pass it on to someone with a toddler.

    14. Stephen Dahlheimer on September 20

      I have a 3 1/2 year old. Is there still something to get out of your book with older kids?

    15. Simone Davies Creator on September 13

      @Carrie Wong So exciting. Thanks for supporting this project. We will set up the online course access for everyone in October. You'll receive a message with an update and information how to gain access! Enjoy.

      Can't wait to read your book!! � I am wondering when will the backer get access to the online course? I really want to start learning right away �

    17. Simone Davies Creator on September 12

      @CrazyAnaGeek Thank you! And, yes, life with toddlers is not easy. But shifting to the role of guide takes away a lot of the tiring, emotional work we put in. We see ourselves ready to support, sometimes just hug them when things are hard, but as their guide to help them through. More in the book! Thanks again.

    18. CrazyAnaGeek on September 12

      Congratulations for the nice project ! I am really looking forward reading this book as my daughter is 15 months at the moment and it's not easy everyday ;)

    19. Simone Davies Creator on September 10

      @J.K.Milos Thanks so much Jay! I hope the parents love it, and all except maybe the section on activities you can still use with M too :).

    20. Simone Davies Creator on September 10

      @Jessica Scrimes I totally agree! I love audio books. Let's keep going everyone...

    21. Simone Davies Creator on September 10

      @ Eve Herrmann Thank you so much Eve, Benoit, Liv and Emy...I appreciate your support so much. Sending best wishes to France!

      @Claudiu Vasile - the €5 level is just for special backer updates. There is not an e-version of the book at the moment. There are many visual elements which work best on (eco) paper. If you wish to change your pledge, please let me know and I'll work it out for you :)

      Congratulations on creating a simply gorgeous book to share your wisdom, experience and helpful tips for parents of this special age-group!! I am very much looking forward to including this book in my music studio library.

      I hope people will back this to the high level so I can have the audiobook. My mum, sister and son all have dyslexia and the audio book would be awesome for them (and for busy mums who want to listen and 'do' at the same time!
