Beauty, Truth and Goodness
Yantra has been a Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf educator for over 30 years, having run 'Little Lavender Rose' Children's
group for 10 years as a Waldorf- Steiner early childhood teacher and since that time offered ongoing mentoring
and support to parents, children, teachers, local Steiner Schools and community. Regarded by many as a spiritual
teacher, therapist, author, artist, illustrator, teacher of art and craft, doll and toy making, and storytelling. Running retreats, workshops, individual life consultations and mentoring, giving talks, and suggestions to help parents,
carers and teachers to support themselves and their children in a most wholesome and healthy way.
When we hear that Rudolf Steiner says to surround our children with "Beauty, Truth & Goodness" what better
way than with art, craft, toys, natural materials, healthy resources, food and lifestyle choices that reflect this.
Tree Tales - A Picture and Poetry book
Written by Jenny Exall and Illustrated by Yantra Lindon
Tree Tales is an exploration of our connection with trees through verse.
Tree Tales is a poetry journey exploring trees through the eyes of a child. With delightful verses and Yantra's beautiful illustrations Jenny's collection of poems takes us back into childhood and moment our indelible relationship with trees.
Suitable for children of all ages. Tree Tales reminds us of the meaning and wonder of having trees in our lives. This little book's wish is to help the reader awaken and explore how a certain tree may evoke warm memories, feelings of bravery and strength, a fun or joyful moment, or even represent a sanctuary of stillness.
Wrapping arms around an old oak tree...hiding away under a weeping willow...resting against a sturdy trunk in the shade on a hot summer's day...Throwing Cherry Blossom petals like confetti...Decorating a real Christmas fir tree. All made to evoke special and nourishing feelings in any child and any inner child!
A lovely book to read together. And when you are done, maybe you will feel inspired to go and connect with your favourite tree.
Adapted from a traditional Norwegian folk tale, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, is a classic story for young children and a much loved story told in Waldorf-Steiner early childhood settings all over the world.
Yantra has worked in Waldorf-Steiner education for over 30 years and brings this adapted version of the story to life with her beautiful puppet-story photographs. Included at the back of the book are patterns with instructions to make the three billy goats and the troll that grace these pages.
A beautifully illustrated book for children, and a wonderful resource for parents and early childhood educators.
