As an independent bookstore each of the titles we carry are selected with informed care. Our books are intentionally chosen with seven elements in mind. Below are examples of titles deliberately selected based on each of these factors: Waldorf classics, new releases, diversity and inclusion, exclusive rights, community demand, author & publisher partnerships, and shipping conditions.

These are the essential texts of Waldorf education from Steiner’s lectures to books associated with foundational Waldorf lesson blocks like saints and heroes in second grade, house building in third grade, human and animal in fourth grade, and so on. At our core, it’s our mission to make these titles available and accessible.

While Waldorf Books is based in the United States, we always consider our global community and their needs.

Author and Publisher Partnerships
Relationships with our distributors are important in supplying our stock. If we cannot source a book we can’t carry it. A title may go out of print, be on backorder for an extended period, or get pulled due to agreements between authors, printers, and whole-sellers.
