Lunch with Milly, illustrated by Robin Spowart and written by his wife, Jeanne Modesitt. It is the first book of Spowart's that I found...in a thrift store bin. What a prize.
These illustrations feel like the beautiful crayon art that one readily associates with Waldorf, but never have I seen Spowart's name listed as a resource or suggested reading on any Waldorf-y list. I think it should be!
Look at this lovely:
Sometimes I Feel Like a Mouse and the illustrations depict different emotions as represented by animals
This one is my favorite right now...
The Star Grazers...it is by Christine Widman and tells the story of a little shepherd whose sheep can't resist leaping into the sky to graze on stars. The boy must follow and bring them safely back home.
I hope you will love these glimpses of Robin Spowart's work enough to get your hands on a real live piece of it for your own. There are many, many others...possibly largely out of print. I have To Rabbittown and The Night Call on the way...I watch my mailbox like a hawk!
I want every mama and child to see these pretty pictures and read some of these lovely stories. I think Spowart's illustrations would be right at home on any young child's Waldorf bookshelf, don't you?
