A uniquely young introduction to the solar system based on the proven Montessori teaching method. Montessori: Planet Work introduces readers to the sun at the center of our solar system before moving outward to the eight planets. Each planet is textured for greater interactivity and a final gatefold spread gives added spatial context. Young children will absorb the age-appropriate information and gain a better sense of their place in the universe.
Authors Bobby George and June George live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where they founded Baan Dek, the first Montessori school in the state, and run Montessorium, an app company. Alyssa Nassner is an illustrator and hand letterer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is the illustrator of the Montessori series for Abrams as well as several books for Chronicle and Ivy Press.
