The Magic Of Waldorf Storybooks
by: Joey van Oort
Thanks so much for having me back Donni! As I mentioned in my last post we do not have a Waldorf School close by to enroll our children, however, we have chosen to live a Waldorf lifestyle at home.
When my children were born my mother in law introduced us to a few of the Waldorf story books that my husband read as a child and that she used in her classroom.
My first impression of these books was how gentle they seemed. The illustrations were soft and muted. The stories were about magical creatures, fairies, elves, gnomes and woodland creatures. I felt as though I was in the story with the tiny characters and that I had slipped into a magical world full of kindness and joy. Over the years I have searched out more Waldorf story books and am happy to share some of the titles with you today!
Click on the authors name to read their bio as well!
I found it very hard to only select a few titles by each of these wonderful authors; please search for their other stories as they all share the same magic! There are many more Waldorf story writers that I didn’t have the space to include but do ask around, I’m sure that there are many that we have not discovered yet as well!
You can find all of these books online but I also encourage you to check out your local bookstores, used book stores, yard sales, your public and school libraries for some of these titles, you never know what kind of magic you may find!
