by Charles Kovacs
A classic resource for Steiner-Waldorf teachers for botany, Classes 5 and 6 (age 10-12).
This is a resource book for teaching about animals in comparison to human beings. It is recommended for Classes (Grades) 4 and 5 (age 9 to 11) in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum.
Charles Kovacs taught in Edinburgh so there is a Scottish flavour to the animals discussed in the first half of the book, including seals, red deer and eagles. In the later chapters, he covers elephants, horses and bears.
Softcover, 144 pages. 216 x 138 mm (5.4 x 8.5 inches).
'I always find Charles Kovacs' books such a joy to read; they are so information and never fail to demonstrate a new way of looking at things. I recommend this book to both teachers and parents as a sensitive and thoughtfully presented introduction to botany for children.'
