Editorial Reviews

Review

A good introductory book is "Waldorf Education: A Family Guide", edited by Pamela Johnson Fenner, Michaelmas Press --

Can find plenty of information and inspiration that would be difficult to glean from any other single publication. -- Dick Oliver, 'Head, Heart, Hands: A Family Newsletter'

It is the kind of book for dipping into in spare moments, or for reading enthusiastically, from cover to cover. -- Wendy Duff, Book Reviewer, Books for the Journey Bookstore, Victoria, Australia

It's a wonderful resource for parents new to the Waldorf School Movement. --Renewal, A Journal for Waldorf Education

Format: Paperback
I can still remember my delight upon unwrapping the package containing "Waldorf Education: A Family Guide" edited by Pamela Fenner and Karen Rivers. It's a beautiful book, filled with wonderful illustrations, and a wealth of helpful text. In this day, when so many books are typeset but never designed, it's refreshing to encounter a book whose visual appearance and form is itself a statement about the need for rhythm and reverence in our lives.
"Waldorf Education: A Family Guide" has its origins as a parent handbook for the Marin Waldorf School. It is a compendium of articles on the history and practice of Waldorf education, content of the curriculum, meaning of the festivals, ways to complement the Waldorf school experience at home, understanding of the temperaments, and other topics that should interest current or prospective parents.
While this format doesn't permit in-depth consideration of any of these topics, this is more than compensated by the wealth of material on the temperaments, multi-culturalism, rhythm and balance, and the role of spirit and religion.
Some of the articles deserve particular mention. Henry Barnes' introduction to Waldorf education ("Learning That Grows with the Learner") is an excellent short summary of how Steiner's observations and theory find expression in the Waldorf School, and John Davy's biographical sketch of Rudolf Steiner will help any newcomer understand how one man could be the source of so much wonderful creative ferment.

I thought this book was a great intro to homeschooling Waldorf style. It also gave a look at Waldorf eduaction in the school. Easy to read. Set up well. Covers most of the questions I had.

I wanted to put this between "It's ok" and "I like it". It's a book of essays that are mostly philosophical. A family guide is really a misnomer, because there is not a lot of "How to" in this book, which is what I was looking for. I realize the Waldorf philosophy is a way of thinking, but sometimes you need to put things into practice before you really start to think in that way. I haven't been able to even get all the way through all the essays. When you already have a busy family, reading more philosophy is not really an easy task.

I wish I had known before I ordered that this book is just a collection of reprinted newsletter articles from Marin Waldorf School. There is far better information out there for free on the Internet.

When considering a Waldorf school for your family, this book has some great guidelines and is a tool for keeping families on track. If you're considering a Waldorf school, this may be something for you if you are unable to peruse the websites or do multiple visits to a school. You can also use this if you "Waldorf at Home" to see what items happen in a Waldorf school environment

There are a handful of "must haves" in terms of Waldorf Educational books, and this is one of them. It is a well-rounded balanced approach to learning many aspects of Waldorf Education that includes practical help with seasonal and every day lessons.

This book has been a great help for me and my family and for me as a teacher! I had one before for many years but sadly it got lost so I needed to buy another one.
I give it my full recommendation.
