To Grow and Become: Stories for Children
This is a collection of lesser-known stories addressing some of the deeper questions of children.
Collected by a long-time class teacher, who found these particularly nourishing for children through fifth grade.
Old Gerasimus and his lion: an Easter legend / N.J. Lyeskow
Legend of Haughty Agge (after an old legend) / W.M. Sarschim
Ilya (after an Old Russian legend)
Lynx’s gift of thanks (after Alexi Remisov)
Maiden Lene of Söndervand: a Danish folk-fairy tale / Svend Grundtvig
Legend of Saint Eustachius / W. Ruhtenberg.
“These stories were told in a Waldorf school by the class teacher, in place of religious instruction, on Fridays during the last period of the day. The intention was to bring a spiritual content to the children for the weekend.” -from the preface
