An invaluable collection of poetry for use by teachers at every stage of school life from primary to mid-teens. The poems are arranged by age of the child from six to fourteen, and provide support for the subject matter of lessons from botany and physics to history and astronomy. They encompass a wide variety of moods from gratitude and wonder at the natural world to the courage and heroism of individuals pitted agains the odds, and range from ancient Egypt to modern times. Works by well-known poets -- Shakespeare, Blake, Wordsworth, Browning -- are found together with the refreshingly unfamilar. Sections on alliterative verse, riddles, tongue-twisters, action verses and the seasons of the year provide a stimulus for practical activities in the classroom. Also included are meditative verses for teachers to help them deepen their understanding of the children in their care. A resource book to treasure, it will awaken a love of poetry in both young and old.

'It was a great joy to many Waldorf teachers when this classic resource was finally republished in 1998. Written from the author's personal collection for use in the classroom, it is a treasure-trove of verses addressing themes across the curriculum in an easy to find organization. From the beautiful to the funny, from action verses to math to grammar to history to meditations for teachers (to name but some), you're sure to find inspiration here.' -- Kristin, Waldorf Resources Consumer Reviews (www.waldorfresources.org) 'Simply put, this book is easily one of the best "resource" purchases I've made so far. I use it to find seasonal or subject-appropriate material and my children read it on their own too. Worth every cent.' Elizabeth H., Waldorf Resources Consumer Reviews
