The Story of the Root Children by Sibylle Von Olfers is timeless, gentle, beautiful. It reads with a rhythm of seasons. A few art projects have sprung from this book in my home (beeswax form of root children, making "Root Children Dresses". My Nine year old still tunes in when I am reading it too my five year old, so you can also get some mileage out of this one. I believe I found it through searching Waldorf books for young children, so there's another avenue for you! Enjoy!

I'm pretty sure I still have a copy somewhere but I can't seem to find it. I'll do a write up when I find it.

So as an educator: I look for books that
- instill love and fascination, with emotional relatability, beauty, and a little humor or drama
- that kids love to read (funny sounds, good word choices, surprises),
- that encourage kids and their families to spend time together honing those habits of observation and open-mindedness.
