Hay for My Ox and Other Stories, Edited by Isabel Wyatt and Joan RudelFloris Books
This classic early reading book for Waldorf schools is now available again in a newly edited edition. The stories and poems range in style and content from the fairy-tale elements of Class 1 (ages 6 to 7) to the legends and animal fables introduced in Class 2 (ages 7 to 8).
Rhythmical repetition of words, sounds, and phrases is used throughout the book but especially widely in the tales for younger children.
Includes: “The Prince Who Kept Pigs”; “The Tree of Three Cries”; “The Giant and the Child”; “The Fork Tail and the Rams”; and “The Monkey and the Pea.”
