Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 10 November 2021

When you speak to a baby, instead of looking at you, at your face, or anything attractive that you may be wearing, like a rose or brooch, he will look directly at your mouth. If little children are so thrilled to see a mouth moving, it is because they have already noticed this strange music that is the human voice.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 61
