Faced with the stark reality that childhood is fast disappearing, Lynne Oldfield quietly convinces us that there is still hope: the richness and quality of the Waldorf early childhood experiences she evokes recreates and protects the lost world of childhood, but the benefits spill over, touching the lives of parents, educators and community alike. Vividly and sensitively written, this book has a powerful message for anyone concerned with the state of childhood today. —Dr. Helen Prochazka, Chairman, Montessori Education, UK
