While telling time is not an official subject in the Primary Montessori curriculum, it is an essential lifelong skill that is woven into daily activities in the Casa, or classroom for three to six year old children. An at-home supplement to exercises in the Casa, My First Montessori Book of Telling Time provides isolated images of clocks and their corresponding written times as well as strategies for parents to promote learning readiness in their children. Written and illustrated by AMI Primary Diploma holder Mary Da Prato, My First Montessori Book of Telling Time features calibrated drawings that accurately reflect the positions of the hour and minute hands of a clock every minute from twelve o'clock through one o'clock, and every fifteen minutes from one-fifteen through eleven forty-five. Longhand and digital transcriptions of time accompany each illustration.

Sharona Ben-Tov Muir discovered after the death of her father, inventor and New Age guru Itzhak Bentov, that he had created Israel’s first rocket. A secret group of scientists working in a rooftop shed, the “Science Corps,” of which he was a part, invented weapons during Israel’s war of independence and later developed Israel’s nuclear resources and other major scientific projects. Bentov, however, settled in Boston and made his fortune with such medical inventions as a cardiac catheter, which he created in his home laboratory, where Muir played as a child. Haunted by the question of why her father had never discussed his past, Muir traveled to Israel to find the Corps. Through her own memories and the memories they share, Muir comes to know the brilliant, impassioned, and creative young Bentov as he demonstrates his latest invention for her, takes her canoeing, and reveals his thoughts about consciousness and the cosmos. Muir elegantly evokes the hubbub of Jerusalem streets, the wartime adventures of her hosts, and the inner lives of Israelis. The resulting story of invention and self-invention, of the Corps’s wartime experience as told for the first time, and of a deep, abiding love between father and daughter is an incandescent memoir. The author provides a new preface for this new Bison Books edition.
