International Doll of the Month: Germany

The International Doll of the Month for October 2015 represents Germany.

Ms. Katja Stein, Emily and Mila’s mom, gave a special presentation on Germany for our students.

The International Doll of the Month is a blog series published by the Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield. The school has a collection of nearly 60 dolls representing the countries of origin of our student body.

The dolls are featured each month to teach children from an early age about cultural diversity and ways of life around the world.
