SteinerBooks - For others, this lovely book offers wonderful glimpses into the wise and nurturing practices of Waldorf early childhood education. They will certainly appreciate its warm, personal, friendly, and reassuring tone. Through art, storytelling, and the festival celebrations, this book is an invaluable guide to building a “family culture” based on the guiding principle of love―a culture that supports children and encourages the free development of each unique soul.

Readers will learn how to create the regular life rhythms needed to establish a foundation for learning; how to design indoor play environments that allow children the broadest development of skills; and how to create outdoor play spaces that encourage vigorous movement and a wide sensory palette.

Heaven on Earth: A Handbook for Parents of Young Children - The important child-development information is exquisitely combined with the best ‘How-to’s’ I have seen in any book for parents. Her book, is a ready guide that insures joyful, enthusiastic children who learn easily and contribute to their families and society for a lifetime. This book is both heartfelt and practical.

Heaven on earth balances a theoretical understanding of child development with practical ideas, resources, and tips that can transform family life.
