What do you think of it? Easy to use? Worth it?

It is definately not worth it! It is not a day to day curriculum--ie. telling you to do this today. Rather is is a guide to family life--do songs and fingerplays regularly, here are some craft projects worth doing, you should be reading fairy and folk tales to your children. You could find all that information in other Waldorf school books like Earthways, An Overview of the Waldorf Kindergarten or You are Your Child's First Teacher.

I had it too- totally not worth it. The later grades have an actual syllabus- preschool doesn't. Mama Shifra described it perfectly.

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right
