'Touch this book and you will touch and teach each child in your care.' -- Eugene Schwartz 'Profound and inspiring.' -- Dennis Klocek 'An invaluable resource.' -- Roberto Trostli 'Magical, exciting and wonderful -- a book that will feed the hearts and minds of children for years to come. One of the greatest collections of poetry ever brought together, meant for years of use -- a resource not just to be loved, but also used.' -- Nancy Parsons, waldorfbooks.com 'It is always a pleasure to find an anthology of poetry which has a creative context, in this case the evolving needs of the children as they progress through their school years. A classroom that rings with the beautiful and wholesome language that this anthology encourages will give the children a lifelong gift to carry out into their relationships, communities and future places of work. The historical section is indeed a gem. The evolution of consciousness as it appears in the changing form and content of poetry is such a meaningful context for Waldorf education.' -- Paul Matthews, Poet, adult educator, and author of Sing Me the Creation: A Creative Writing Sourcebook
