THE SEVEN YEAR OLD WONDER BOOK ~ ISABEL WYATT
The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book is what we grown-ups might call a collection of fairy tales. But to Sylvia, a sensitive and imaginative girl of six-going-on-seven, it is a very real and very special experience.
As author Isabel Wyatt says, Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book is "for everyone who has ever been seven years old, or is, or soon will be."
From the very first page, you and your children will be enthralled by her vivid imagery and tales of mystery, magic, and mythical creatures like snow birds, fairy princesses, witches, gnomes, and even The Dragon.
For that great majority of us concerned with the human condition, this special book also has a message. Woven throughout each story, like a silken fairy's wings, is the profound, humanistic Waldorf School philosophy which stresses our kinship with nature, our inherent creativity, our higher levels of consciousness, and our need to take things one at a time.
So come! Follow along with Sylvia through her adventures and share the experience of her first lost tooth. Who could forget when it is celebrated with gifts from three fairies.
