Local children’s authors receive acclaim for new work

Bobby and June George probably are best known for their work as educational app developers and Montessori educators.

But the owners of Montessorium and Baan Dek Montessori school find time to write books, too.

Their children’s books are Montessori-inspired works published as part of their business June Books.

Their new book, “My First Book of Patterns,” was reviewed recently by The Wall Street Journal in a piece touting the best new children’s books.

It also was featured by the Los Angeles Times, which called it a “visually dynamic board book that shows kids ages 3 to 6 how a circle forms a pattern and a line becomes a chevron.”

The website Artsy.net also named it among the best books for art lovers.

The book is published by Phaidon.

“We’re over the moon with the attention this title is receiving, and we feel really blessed to be able to work with such great editors and the entire team at Phaidon,” Bobby George said.

June Books has four other titles with publisher Abrams, including “Montessori: Math Work,” “Montessori: Letter Work,” “Montessori: Shape Work” and “Montessori: Map.”
