Warmth is a hand-knitted woolly jumper and a crackling fire in the grate. Warmth is a smile when we need encouragement and a hug when things aren’t going our way. This one word has many powerful and positive associations. Warmth is one of the basic building blocks of existence; without it, there would be no life or growth on Earth. As parents we want our children to be warm—physically and emotionally. We raise them to be warm people, full of compassion and hope.

In the first book of its kind, anthroposophic therapist Edmond Schoorel explores the role of warmth across many aspects of child development, including:

  • physical warmth and what children should wear
  • the role of warmth in bodily processes such as growth, energy and health
  • the importance of emotional warmth
  • warmth of spirit, or enthusiasm

This fascinating and practical book gives parents and caregivers valuable insight into how to nurture various aspects warmth in everyday family and community life. It will be useful for teachers and anyone who works with children.
