8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jody Noller on October 21, 2009
My daughter is now 20 and in college. I was a single father and raised her by myself, and I feel that this book is extremely insightful. I clearly recall Major changes in her during the 9th year. I remember one Fall afternoon taking a hike with her and she noticed the dead flowers and commented "Dad- the flowers were so pretty when they were born in the Spring and now they are gone- where are they and what happened to them?" my explanation to her was that even though the flowers had died, the roots (analogous to the soul) were alive beneath the soil and in the Spring will sprout new Life again I (Idea of Reincarnation) She was fascinated when I told her this. Many children at this age experience an "aloneness" and separateness from everyone else and begin to feel different and question many things. One night when lying on our backs and staring into the deepness of the universe, I asked her where she thinks we all come from. She pointed to the stars overhead! Amazing!

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Cassandra Torgrimson on January 10, 2009
We have noticed lately that our soon-to-be 9 year old daughter is changing. Her interests are changing, along with her reactions to some things. Through Waldorf, I had heard about "the nine year change". This book clearly explained what goes on with the nine year old. I liked that it used real-life conversations with parents that gave extremely detailed accounts of what their children were doing, then you have the teacher telling why the child is doing those things, and it made sense!

I've enjoyed reading this book because of the insight it has given me into Rudolf Steiner's view of the 9-year change in children. I believe he is correct with many of his ideas about the child's psychological development between ages 8-10.
The material can be a bit dense, I needed to read it several times and make notes so that I could understand it--plus it presents ideas I had not considered (which stretched this mommy-brain).
I found the first 2 chapters--the conversations with parents, to be the most accessible.
If you are looking to better understand your child on the brink of his/her 9th birthday and if you want to help them on their journey to happy, fulfilled adulthood, I think this is a good book to read.
It is in line with the "Waldorf" method of instruction.

This book is very insightful and struck many chords with me and my experience with my own son reaching this developmental change.
