The Human Being and the Animal World

Charles Kovacs



Add a review

Another teaching gem from Charles Kovacs, the Scottish Waldorf teacher whose legacy of class notes has become a wellspring for class teachers and homeschoolers throughout the English-speaking world.

In this volume, fauna common to Scotland and much of the Northern Hemisphere are considered one-by-one, followed with chapters on elephants, horses and bears. As we have come to expect, Kovacs' warmth and insight infuse each presentation and serve to inspire anyone teaching from them.

The Human Being and the Animal World

Roy Wilkinson


Add a review

Up to age nine, children do not differentiate clearly between their own inner life and the world outside. They experience the animals as brothers and sisters who can speak and act as human beings. Types of animals have been characterized in the fables which Waldorf students have heard in their early years. At age nine, the student experiences the separation of him/herself from the world. Teaching students about the relationship of animals to human beings rebuilds the bridge between the student and the world.

Drawing from the Book of Nature

Dennis Klocek



Add a review

Drawing from the Book of Nature does double-duty as a book that is about both drawing and the natural world of plant and animal. Here is a wonderful resource for teachers, students or anyone wishing to develop their capacity for the artistic observation of natural phenomena.

Dennis Klocek, with his refreshing combination of depth and clarity, offers a wealth of insight into the lives of plants and animals. His text is enhanced with step-by-step lessons to help the reader bring the kingdoms of nature to life on paper.
