Can anyone recommend any parenting books, particulary with discipline ideas, that would align with Montessori style?

I haven't read it in a while, but I remember thinking that "Kids are Worth It!" by Barbara Coloroso seemed pretty compatible with Montessori. I personally found the Jellyfish/Brickwall/Backbone (permissive, authoritarian, authoritative) a little overly preachy and obvious but there is a lot of stuff along the lines of children taking responsiblity for their own mistakes, making amends, helping them develop their own judgement, etc. which I think is very much in line with Montessori.

 

Not a book, but in case you haven't come across it, I found this blog post about the Montessori approach to discipline very informative:
