Description

Simple singing and gesture games have long been a core element of Steiner-Waldorf early years education. This thought-provoking book explores such games in depth, considering their nature and significance.

The deep esoteric meaning of these seemingly simple games is brought to light, and the author argues convincingly for the importance of a gradual and healthy awakening from the 'childhood dream'.

The book includes delightful examples from the author's Dutch heritage, many newly translated into English.
