This is a photo of her son, Florian at age 1 year 7 months. The photo has excellent clarity and the angle helps capture Florian’s intense focus. This is clearly a “Montessori Moment.” It includes nature, beauty, reality, exploration, discovery, concentration, curiosity, independence, joy, and more.
Martha will be receiving a $50 gift certificate to access beautiful educational downloads at the Montessori for Everyone store (donated by Lori Bourne). She will also receive the 2010 Book of the Year by Creative Child Magazine “Go Green With Me” from The Little Environmentalist (donated by Rebecca Matanno, author).
Thanks to everyone who turned in entries. It was a difficult choice. And many thanks to our special donors for their participation, support, and generosity. And thank you, Martha Huester, for sharing your “Montessori Moment” with us all.
