Freya Jaffke’s books on early childhood have sold more than a quarter of a million copies.Review:
'One of the simplest, clearest, and most essential books on toys and play that I have ever read.' -- The Peridot 'This greatly expanded edition is an excellent handbook with plenty of ideas for teachers and the parents of young children.' -- Kindling, the Journal for Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood, Spring/Summer 2003. 'Freya Jaffke managed to breathe her many years experience as a master Waldorf kindergarten teacher into a volume capable of inspiring, guiding and reassuring new parents toward a balanced, beautiful life with their children. This is a hands-on approach that is deeply suited to working with and understanding young children. This is a book to enjoy in the deepest sense of the word, and makes an excellent companion to Work and Play in Early Childhood. The new edition adds colour photographs, more toys to make (more joy to bring!), and wonderful discussions of which toys to give to children at what ages, how to create a beautiful, nurturing environment, even tips for clean-up! I have loved this book since it was first published -- this most recent incarnation elevates it from "wonderful" to "must have".' -- Bob and Nancy's Bookshop (www.waldorfbooks.com)
