Hay for My Ox and Other Stories: A First Reading Book for Waldorf Schools

English books

By Isabel Wyatt

A classic early reading book for Steiner-Waldorf schools in a newly edited edition.

The stories and poems range in style and content from the fairy-tale elements of Class 1 (age 6-7) to the legends and animal fables introduced in Class 2 (age 7-8).

Rhythmical repetition of words, sounds and phrases is used throughout the book but especially widely in the tales for younger children.

It 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.
