This book is a concise exploration of Rudolf Steiner's recommendation that class teachers create verses for their pupils to be inserted into their annual school reports. These are sometimes known in Europe as 'report verses', or 'birthday verses' in America.

Heinz Müller considers the guiding principles behind the recommendation. The book includes many inspiring verses that Müller wrote for his own students.
