Hay for My Ox and other stories: A first reading book for Waldorf schools edited by Isabel Wyatt and Joan Rudel is a classic. This early reading book for Steiner-Waldorf schools is available again in a newly edited edition.
The stories and poems range in style and content from the fairy-tale elements of Class 1 (age 6-7) to the legends and animal fables introduced in Class 2 (age 7-8).
Rhythmical repetition of words, sounds and phrases is used throughout the book but especially widely in the tales for younger children.
It includes The Prince Who Kept Pigs, The Tree of Three Cries, The Giant and the Child, The Fork-Tail and the Rams, and The Monkey and the Pea.
