These touch games, called "caresses" by Wilma Ellersiek, consist of rhymed verses or lullabies and gentle caressing touches as were practiced in similar folk games which have fallen into disuse in today's media society.
The author has created a new collection of artistic-musical touch games and lullabies for today's children out of her extensive knowledge of child development based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner. Her lullabies are based on the experience of the fifth interval with central tone A and are often accompanied by corresponding hand gestures. CD also available.
