Mom’s Choice GOLD Awards for two new books from Waldorf Publications!! November 19 2015, 0 Comments
The Sun With Loving Light is an exquisite book, filled with songs, verses, poems, and stories perfect for early readers and for family reading time. Mom’s Choice Awards has recognized this book with a top-flight, GOLD award in the illustrated children’s book category.
Stephen Bloomquist, editor of this fine collection, brings his decades of Waldorf teaching experience to this gem of a reader for little ones. He entices children to yearn to read with the richness of the selection of music and literature.
Award winning, nationally acclaimed Scherenschnitte craft artist, Pamela Dalton, lightly illustrates The Sun With Loving Light with suggestive pictures designed to stimulate the imagination of children to make pictures of their own.
The book is a transliteration of Caroline von Heydebrand’s first reader, Der Sonne Licht, from the first Waldorf school in Germany but has North America in mind as it gathers the best of literature available for young readers here.
Mom’s Choice has also recognized Learning to See the World through Drawing, a new book by Elizabeth Auer, a Waldorf graduate and class teacher. It is also a GOLD award winner in the adult book category.
This full color, lavishly illustrated book explores ways to enter into the expressive art of drawing with a variety of media. This book is filled with drawing ideas and gives clear instructions on how to practice drawing, how to perceive things to make them come alive in drawing, and also clear instructions on how to introduce drawing to children. Explanations of why drawing is so important are woven into the instruction.
The book is accompanied with a CD which supplements the hundreds of illustrations with hundreds more blackboard and main lesson book illustrations.
