Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Baldwin, who dealt with childbirth options in Special Delivery ( LJ 5/15/79), here suggests techniques that allow infants and children to grow and learn while maintaining their prenatal connections to the dream world--e.g., using certain colors in the nursery and kinderharps instead of drums for musical training. Her refreshingly clear bias, based on the semi-mystical philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, will appeal to those with New Age leanings. More conservative parents will still find this sensible, informative, and enriching. Child-care workers, too, can profit from this supportive and encouraging advice on integrating youngsters' physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development.-- Nancy M. Laskowski, Free Lib. of Philadelphia
