Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 19 September 2020

When the child pronounces the sounds of the consonants he experiences an obvious pleasure. This series of sounds so varied and so well known, which come to life in the presence of an enigmatic symbol like a letter of the alphabet, are a novelty for him. There is a mystery about it that arouses in him an intense interest.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 213
