Baking, washing, sweeping, mending, singing, painting! Imagine the scent of bread baking, the warm sudsy water for washing, the muscle power of sweeping, the fine eye-hand coordination of mending and sewing. Imagine the visual education in the dancing watercolors. And if you have had the great pleasure of sitting in the midst of children's creative, imaginative play, you will know the happy sound at the heart of this beehive of activity. All this beauty given to the children is "nutritional." Their senses are stimulated, and through free movement and imitation of the adult, the experience is digested. It then becomes their own, nourishing their growth toward freedom. Book jacket.Steiner, Rudolf is the author of 'What Is a Waldorf Kindergarten?' with ISBN 9780880105767 and ISBN 0880105763.
