Celebrating Diversity

Alan Whitehead, Waldorf teacher of both students and teachers, in his book The People Pool says of Steiner, “He recommended on every hand the telling of ‘folk’ tales (‘marchen’)…‘Folk’ tale means, as the quoted passage makes clear, the story of one’s own people and place – the children’s own story. Remember what he said, ‘They were themselves a part of the story’. The folk story is something that is continually created anew, as the circumstances of the folk change. They serve a particular time and place of a given people of folk.” The books below can provide those stories.
