Eight Books for the First Grade Year

There are a LOT of lovely Waldorf teaching books out there! A LOT. But since I'm getting ready for Zac to start First Grade in the fall, I've been thinking about which books are my favorites. If I were shopping for First Grade right now, what are the essential books I would really want to have? Here are the eight I have come up with. I welcome other thoughts and suggestions!

UPDATE: This is the booklist I recommended for folks in the First Grade Immersive Experience course (which is complete and now contains all of my bullet point notes, photos, and videos... day by day... from our entire 1st grade year). There are only a few spaces left. Join and follow along with us!!

If you are working with a very tight budget, the following two resources are excellent and they are comprehensive enough to guide you from Grade 1 all the way through to Grade 12: The Tasks and Content of the Steiner-Waldorf Curriculum edited by Martyn Rawson, Tobias Richter, and Kevin Avison and the Waldorf Curriculum Chart edited by David Mitchell.

Just found this lovely list of Waldorf Grade 1 Book Recommendations by Waldorf Publications.
