New picture books from 2014! You may know your classic go-tos, but sorting through new books can be time-consuming. These books are appropriate for most Montessori classrooms for children 2 1/2 years to 6 years old (the Children's House); they feature nature, natural life and life cycles, beautiful illustrations or photographs and respectful treatment and inclusion of many cultures and belief systems. These titles may be fiction or nonfiction, but always follow the Montessori principle of offering primarily reality-based information to children under the age of 6 in the classroom.
