    The lessons of Grace and Courtesy in Montessori environments that replace “classroom management” help children to build community together. Simple sentences and related art will quide you through the lessons of Grace and Courtesy and serve as a gentle reminder of the practices that create harmony among children.

    Artist and Montessori teacher Alicia Olsen has created an easel book with paintings of 16 lessons for Grace and Courtesy. Each page is a painting with a simple sentence that you can use to demonstrate a lesson to children, or reinforce by setting a particular page on a shelf at the children’s eye-level.

  • Sing with Joy: Music of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for Children Three to Six Years
    $40.00

    A book and CD set of 39 songs with music, chords, lyrics and notes by Catherine Maresca regarding use of each song in the atrium. The CD is recorded by the children’s choir of Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, TN.

The texts were chosen by Sofia Cavalletti. Simply illustrated with only one drawing in each booklet so the child’s reflection will be encouraged but not limited by the artwork.

    The color of the covers follows the coding of Sofia’s own hardbound set.
