Heaven on Earth - A Handbook for Parents of Young Children
by Sharifa Oppenheimer


In Heaven on Earth, parent and educator Sharifa Oppenheimer reveals how to make the home environment warm, lively, loving, and consistent with your highest ideals.

Heaven on Earth balances theoretical understanding of child development with practical ideas, resources, and tips that can transform family life. Readers will learn how to establish the life rhythms that lay the foundation for all learning; how to design indoor play environments that allow children the broadest skills development; and how to create backyard play spaces that encourage vigorous movement and a wide sensory palette. Through art, storytelling, and the festival celebrations, this book is a guide to building a “family culture” based on the guiding principle of love, a culture that supports children and allows the free development of each unique soul.

Responding to parents’ questions from more than twenty years of teaching, this book is a gift from the heart, and a practical, inspiring resource that brings her informed, intuitive understanding of young children into the heart of the home. Paperback.  224 pages.

About the Author:  Sharifa Oppenheimer was the founding teacher of the Charlottesville Waldorf School, Virginia, where she taught kindergarten for twenty-one years and served as day care director of the early-childhood program.  She has a great deal of experience in Waldorf education, and has written extensively about helping parents create supportive home environments for their children.
