Description:     

Children take their daytime experience over into their sleep life. In Sleep, Audrey E. McAllen writes explicitly about the importance of sleep in education, including lively descriptions of her experiences working with children. Very valuable are the Moral Color Exercises, a series of paintings she developed from indications by Rudolf Steiner and Hilde Boos-Hamburger, exercises very much appreciated by children from sixth grade on.
