Babies and young toddlers explore their worlds through creative play. Based on the Steiner theory-the world-renowned holistic approach to childhood education as taught in the Waldorf Schools-this illustrated guide offers advice for parents on helping your baby develop mind, body, and spirit through stimulating imaginative play. Practical instruction is provided for each stage of development, centering around some 25 age-appropriate toys that parents can make at home. The playthings include dolls and puppets, knitted animals, rattles and balls, simple cars and other vehicles, blocks, and even a sandbox. The toys will stir the imagination, enhance sensory awareness, and enable children to discover more of their expanding world.
