In Waldorf early childhood education children are told stories about everyday life. Perhaps they hear stories about going to the store to go shopping or baking a cake. We may even tell them a story about taking care of chickens on a farm, getting dressed in the morning, or building sandcastles on the beach. Children from age 3-7 love to hear stories about themselves.
This book is perfect for those children that have hair like Zuri or for children who’s friends, relative, neighbors, or community members have hair like Zuri. The story is simple and relatable while also humorous and delightful. Children from ages 3-7 are naturally curious about the differences in people around them and this book is a wonderful way to highlight the beauty in one of those differences.
