Contains a wide variety of poems, songs, and stories for the spring season and many contributions for festivals.
Based on work in Waldorf kindergartens, the Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spindrift and Gateways books provide invaluable material for working with young children and will be useful for Waldorf teachers, home schoolers, and parents alike.
First published more than twenty years ago, these books are in their third edition, now reedited and with much new material added. In addition, the music has been comprehensively edited, with most songs now in the scale of D-pentatonic, which is particularly suited to pentatonic lyres and may be played on any traditional seven-note or twelve-note instrument. Each volume includes an enlightening introduction by Jennifer Aulie on music in the "mood of the fifth."
The covers are all illustrated in watercolours by David Newbatt, with the four seasonal titles each depicting a different worker.
