The Flexible Giant, by Craig HoldregeNature Institute
Craig Holdrege traveled to Africa to observe animals in the wild. Upon his return he wrote this remarkable little book about elephants that is a must read for Waldorf teachers at all levels. You should not only use it as a source book for describing elephants in zoology or man and animal blocks, however. When you read it pay keen attention to how Craig brings this wonderful animal to life in the pages of his book and then your own creative powers will be enhanced as you describe any animal, insect, plant, or even mineral that you teach. -David Mitchell, Waldorf Science Newsletter #19, Autumn 2003.This book is of interest not only to teachers but also to nature lovers and to everyone interested in a holistic approach to understanding nature.
