Enlightening Oct 6, 2006
Reading this book gave me a great understanding into Steiner education. It was the first Steiner book I read and made me change my whole view on which method to use when homeschooling my kids. It has lots of examples from schools around the world about how children respond to this type of nurturing and caring. It won't tell you how to teach using this approach but it is a great spring board, will spark your mind and give you a little taste of the endless possibilities. It is certainly well worth the read.
