This is a most amazing book, and one that I think any parent should have if they want to bring the joy of living into every day of their and their children's lives. It has already inspired me to pay attention to the natural rhythms of our day; thinking about our periods of hunger, excitement, and need for rest. It is full of wonderful poems, songs, and stories that make some of the more normal tasks of living seem bright and new. It also contains beautiful ruminations about the rhythms of our days, and how to enjoy each phase and each task of parenting life. If these amazing resources weren't enough, this amazing volume also has wonderful lists of story books that are some of the best and most universal literature for children, and a full list of resources for parents looking to expand on the information introduced in the book.
If you want to enjoy a fuller parenting life, and help your children to grow strong and secure in a balanced home setting, this is the book for you. Embrace the power of rhythm, enjoy every moment of your day.
The book is very well organized by general theme. This book is about rhythm in daily life, so the topics are: waking up, mealtime, playtime, work, quiet time, healing from injury, bedtime, and weekend family time. Special chapters for parents only are "personal renewal" and parents as peacemakers. A long appendix offers resources for music, verses, and stories. Every section is organized by the following topics: general discussion about the author's reflections, simple rituals, insights, songs, a listing of pertinent stories in various books, and an actual story to tell (text of story written out). The songs include sheet music and all the notations so that an instrument may be played along as it is sung. Music is in the pentatonic scale as recommended by Rudolph Steiner. Many of the songs and verses were written by the author.
What impressed me most about this book was that it is so well organized and contains so many topics. This is a wonderful jumping off point for beginning to celebrate rhythm and rituals into normal daily life with our children. There is enough material here for the parent to design their own circle time. Another bonus is the personal insight and opinion that Ms. Darian includes. Unlike other books on the market, this is not just a listing of verses and songs. I highly recommend this for any Waldorf parent who wants to add some ritual into their day, or for any homeschooler wanting the same.
If you have small children, get this book. You'll be glad you did.
