Rukia Goes To School by Susan CookWaldorf Publications
Susan Cook, a teacher from the San Francisco Waldorf School has written a delightful supplemental reader for children in grades 1-5.
The story is about the day in the life of Rukia a third grade student at the Rudolf Steiner School Mbagathi south of Narobi, Kenya. It is great fun to experience the culture of an African Waldorf school and see the differences and similarities to Waldorf schools in North America.
Rukia lives with her mother, father, and sister on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. She is looking forward to beginning Class Three at her Steiner/Waldorf school. The first day back to school is always full of anticipation and excitement. The new school bus is a very big surprise.
