Winter: A Collection of Poems, Songs and Stories for Young Children
Based on work in Waldorf kindergartens, this book is one in a series of six books that provide invaluable material for working with young children and will be useful for Waldorf teachers, home schoolers, and parents alike. Other books in the series are Spring, Summer, Autumn, Gateways and Spindrift.
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 watercolors by David Newbatt, with the four seasonal titles each depicting a different worker.
