The first book I would like to mention is one that I am highly reccomending for any parent, of any child, of any age. It is called "Simplicity Parenting" and is by Kim John Payne. I picked this book up about a year and a half ago for the first time, before I was even expecting a child. Being a nanny and preschool teacher I am constantly reading any new literature about childcare that I can get my hands on. This title really caught my eye, since I had just started to get interested in Waldorf education and was trying to find anything that even mentioned Waldorf. I have read this book about 3 times and I have just started reading it again, because now I can relate to it on a different level having my own child. I actually just went to a lecture he was giving and if he is coming to your town I would go to see him. You can visit his website for upcoming tour dates.http://www.simplicityparenting.com/.
The next book is called "10 Habits of Happy Mothers" by Meg Meekeer. I haven't gotten too far into this one, but it seems really interesting. I am looking forward to having the chance to really sit down and read it so I can truly absorb what she is saying.
The next one is "Body after Baby" by Jackie Keller. I am trying to lose my baby weight and came upon this book. I like the way she lays out 30 days of menus and activities. There are a lot of really good recipes in this book, ones that I would actually make and eat.
and the last one that I am going to mention today is "Creative Play For your Toddler" by Christopher Clouder and Janni Nicol. This book has many great children's toy projects, which are based around Waldorf philospohy. I am trying to find simple things that I can make for the little one. This book has a lot of great ideas.
