Stephenson publishes her sixth book
Susan Stephenson of Trinidad has just published her sixth book on education. It is called The Red Corolla, Montessori Cosmic Education and based on the lectures she delivered at the Montessori training center and Casablanca, Morocco last summer where, for the purpose of explaining how humans and animals and plants are all connected, she gave Montessori teachers-in-training exact details on lessons for young children on physics, biology, history and geography, music and the art.
The book is available on Amazon in many countries and will be translated into other languages.
Last week, Susan’s The Universal Child Guided by Nature, the Spanish language edition, was published. Congratulations to this busy author, lecturer and artist.
