“The mind of the child does not limit itself to the objects they can see…”

"…and their qualities, but goes beyond this, showing imagination. Children for whom a table in play becomes a house, a chair serves as a horse, who can visualize a fairy and fairyland, have no difficulty in visualizing America or the world, especially with a globe to help. ." 
   
— Dr. Maria Montessori
Education for a New World
