Description
In this thoughtful book, Freya Jaffke describes festival celebrations in relation to child development in the first seven years. She considers in detail the main festivals throughout the year: Easter, Whitsun, St John's, starting school, harvest, Michaelmas, lantern time, birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, and carnival.

Drawing on many examples, she shows how we can celebrate festivals with children at home and in kindergarten in a meaningful way. Every festival is prefaced with a deeper contemplation for adults, before considering preparations with children, followed by the actual organization of the festival-with games, craft activities and decorations, stories, songs, poems, and the seasonal nature table.

Freya Jaffke is an experienced Steiner-Waldorf kindergarten teacher in Germany. Her books on early childhood have sold over quarter of a million copies worldwide.
