Description

Hands-on modelling is key skill for children, leading to the development of their mind and intelligence through a rich complexity of sense experiences.

Arthur and Elizabeth Auer make a plea to parents and teachers alike to 'let children work with their hands'. This comprehensive, heavily illustrated book demonstrates a multitude of modelling projects for different ages using different materials including clay, beeswax, plasticine, dough, sand and snow.

Author

Arthur and Elizabeth Auer have worked together for many years to build up the Pine Hill Waldorf School in New Hampshire, USA, as teachers, trustees and parents.
