Truer Than True brings twenty-six wonderful tales from around the world to the home and classroom,
and to all who love stories. These favorites of the Waldorf early childhood classroom were collected
and adapted to enhance inclusiveness and understanding, and to share beloved stories that nourish
families from many cultures. "The fairy tale is unique . . . in its capacity to offer seeds of solace and social
healing to the soul-in-becoming, and to be a wise and tender guide for us all, in both childhood and adulthood.
It is my firm conviction that, with a deepened understanding of how fairy tales work and a wider cultural palette from
which to choose, fairy tales will remain a revered part of Waldorf early childhood education." —from the Introduction
