Montessori in your Cheerios box

"Hope and peace and love and trust.
All the world
is all of us"

Our family has greatly enjoyed the wonderful books that Cheerios and First Book have placed inside of the Cheerios boxes this year. Ty's favorite surely being "The Purple Kangaroo", and mine being the book shown above, "All the World" by Liz Garton Scanton and illustrated by Caldecott Honor Medalist, Marla Frazee. 

The message and beautiful illustrations of "All the World" made me instantly think "Montessori!"  With a peaceful poetic flow, the book takes the child through their connection with nature, from beach to garden to trees and birds, exploring culture, food, family and music, and how these things connect us all, "all the world". It has quickly become one of my favorite children's books.

If you don't purchase Cheerios, or can't find the boxes with this particular book, I've linked the book from Amazon for you below.
