Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 20 November 2021

By the time a child is three months old, he is already looking with great interest at the mouth of anyone who is speaking. He is interested, because this mouth is doing something which has already struck him as fascinating; unconsciously he is curious to watch this strange organ from which these sounds emanate.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 61
