Understood Betsy, by Dorothy Canfield Fisher, is a delightful, fictional story of a young girl who finally comes into her own to achieve happiness in a Montessori environment. This is a great story for parents to read before starting a Montessori program. Mrs. Fisher was an early supporter of Montessori education. She met Dr. Montessori in Italy in 1911. While observing Dr. Montessori’s child developmental daycare, the Children’s House, she was so impressed by what was happening that she became an avid supporter of the Montessori movement in America. She wrote several books on the Montessori method as well.
