This is a lovely earthy book full of great craft ideas to celebrate different times of the year. My kids go to a mainstream school (not Steiner) but there is something rather lovely about getting together and celebrating the changing of the seasons with them and we try and do an activity from this book every month or so. In this world dominated by TV and video games, this book is like a breath of fresh air! I would also think this would be a great resource for any childminder or nursery.

I wasn't familiar with Waldorf/Steiner education before I bought this book, but I really love this book and it's approach to nature and the seasons. There are lots of books aimed at things to do with children and ways to celebrate different festivals, but this book has such a gentle, almost old fashioned feel. There is no commercialism in this book, which can be found in so many things aimed at children. I would recommend this book to friends.

This book gives us great help to provide the environment We wish our children to grow up in. Being a typical expat family we often have no access to Steiner/Waldorf schools. Trying to compensate for that in the afternoons we have found many of the ideas in this book very useful.

At first, because I had bought "the children's year" previously, I was a little disappointed to see that there not much craft to do. But once I really got to read the book, I found an amazing source of information for each special celebration of the year, from its origin to how people celebrate it with songs, recipes, stories. I felt enriched by this book.

Overall a very lovely and well written boook with great craft and activity ideas throughout. Major warning though that although it does contain some mention and description of traditional British and European festivals and folklore, the book is based almost exclusively around the Christian church calendar.
We bought this book hoping it would include more on a wider range of festivals - perhaps non-Christian traditional British or some lovely Hindu festivals. That is not made clear in the discription so please be warned if this is what you are after.

This book is a treasure, and has been borrowed by family friends and my children's school.
It covers so many traditional British festivals some long forgotten (by current generations) some familiar - its sad to think that there are many children who think "trick or treat" and christmas are the be all and end all.
Although the book doesn't cover many traditional Scottish festivals such as "guising" which pre-dates the ghastly "trick or treat" by several hundred years or burning the clavie but these regional ommissions are forgiven as there are many just so many crafts and activities and information on many many seasonal festivals and traditions that must be retained by everyone.
Beautifully crafted book that will be treasured by all who are lucky enough to dip into it.
It wets your appetite for the other books in the series and any book that encourages you to share activities with your children gets the thumbs up in our house.
Lovely

this book gives a lot of helpful information about seasons and festivals. it also gives a lot of patterns for making different decorations for the certain season. i find it very helpful. This can also be used for crafting together with children.

I absolutely love this book; it has a bit of everything - stories, craft, recipes and is a wonderful way to celebrate the changing seasons and festivals.
Essential if you are in (or thinking of getting involved in) Steiner schools/kindergarten. Just really really lovely.
