About the Author:

Karen Latimer began a career in textbook publishing in New York and San Francisco after receiving a B.A. in English. Interested in early childhood education, she taught at the Waldorf School of the Peninsula, Los Altos, CA for twenty years. Following retirement, Latimer helped teach literacy skills to children and adolescents in the Project READ literacy program at Redwood City Public Library. She also has taught adults at the Bay Area Waldorf Teacher Training Program in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Pamela Fenner taught science in two schools in MA following her graduation from Harvard University with a M.A.T. degree. Following a move to the Bay Area, she served on the Curriculum Advisory Group for her local school district and worked with a reading specialist in the K-3 Early Childhood Education (ECE) program. After certification as a Waldorf teacher, Fenner worked at two schools, helped found a school in Maine, and became a publisher specializing in education and parenting titles. She has been project editor for the following titles: 'Books for the Journey: A Guide to the World of Reading' (with Greer and Wulsin); 'Beyond the Rainbow Bridge: Nurturing our children from birth to seven' (Patterson and Bradley); 'Waldorf Education: A Family Guide' and 'Waldorf Student Reading List'.

From Booklist:

A revised and updated version of their Waldorf Student Reading List (1999), editors Latimer and Fenner aim to provide a resource for teachers and parents looking for titles aligned with the Waldorf educational curriculum.The book is divided into chapters covering several grade levels plus sections for “Picture Books,” “Biography,” “Mythology,” and “Celebrations.” The editors, Waldorf-trained educators, introduce the educational goals for each age group, then annotate each selection, including publication data and awards. Titles have been chosen with care, and pains have been taken to feature only those books still easily obtained. However, the lists contain a great number of titles published in the early to mid-twentieth century; there will be little to purchase for libraries looking for the newest in Waldorf-recommended publications. Many public librarians may also find the age range suggestions surprising, often skewing older than commonly accepted. Most realistically, Make Way for Reading will find a home as a circulating book in communities with a large base of homeschooling families or an actual Waldorf school. --Genevieve Grove
