4.0 out of 5 stars A good book if you're a crafty parent 9 Dec 2011
I found this book in the library and decided to give it a go. It is based on the Steiner Waldorf method which, frankly, I didn't know much about, so I found the introduction of the book very helpful. There, the authors explain the theory behind it and compare it with other theories such as Montessori. The following chapters are titled
Further reading

Each chapter begins with an introduction which is followed by step by step instructions for toys that support this part of your child. The photos are very nice and the instructions clear and simple.

Personally, I am not the "crafty parent" and never liked soft dolls myself as a child, so the idea of knitting rabbits or making a felt horse doesn't appeal to me. Some ideas I really liked though, such as the doll sling or the swing for toys- I could see my toddler loving these and didn't have this idea before. Making "moving pictures" also seems a good idea and quite simple to make, and making a raft boat could be nice in the spring/summer.
All in all, not all the ideas appeal to me and I haven't looked enough into the Waldorf Steiner method to say if I like it or not, but I think one could enjoy this book without even really using this method. Have a look at your local library if they have this book and decide for yourself if it deserves a place on your book shelf! Definitely a good book to get some new ideas from.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource book 13 July 2010
This book provides an excellent overview of Steiner Waldorf Early Years. It is clear and easy to understand, written by two authors knowledgeable in child development and Steiner Waldorf education.
The toys are delightful with simple "easy-to-follow" instructions. A gift to all those who care for little children and want to be creative with and for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars gran1 9 May 2013
I am using this absolutely brilliant book to make toys for my grandchild. I love the simplicity and am finding the instructions easy and the toys, so far, are turning out really well. We are doing things together, such as collecting branches and sanding etc. Having lots of fun. The philosophy behind this is very interesting, and although I dont know much about Waldorf Steiner, I can relate to the thinking behind this.
