games, crafts, and recipes.
Written by Betty Jones.
years of trying to obtain a copy for myself of this
treasure, only to be disappointed in the outrageously
inflated prices on Amazon due to the original copy being
out of print, I am delighted to announce that Betty
been able to release her revised edition of "A
Child's Seasonal Treasury".

nature, see sample pages of her book, as well as what
tantalizing gems are to be found within it's pages.
Child’s Seasonal Treasury was conceived as a Waldorf-inspired
resource book for parents and teachers of young children.
This book was written to be used throughout the seasons
with songs, verses, poems, riddles, fingerplays, games,
creative drama and movement, watercolor painting, handcrafts,
healthy recipes and gratitude for life that rekindles
a sense of wonder.
will also find that this revised edition is filled with
more of Betty's own original writing and illustrations,
as well as more recipes, hands-on activities, nature-based
seasonal activities and elemental beings bringing joy
in learning the "3 R's" for the young child:

• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 1 tablespoon salt

• Let this stand until the yeast, sugar and salt
• Gradually add the flour to the liquid and mix
thoroughly until the dough pulls away from the sides
of the bowl.
• Turn the dough out onto a floured surface to
(This may be a little messy, but don't give up!)
• Fold the far edge of the dough back over on
itself towards you.
• Press into the dough with the heels of your
hands and push away.
• After each push, rotate the dough 90 degrees.
• Repeat this process in a rhythmic, rocking motion
for 5 minutes, sprinkling only enough flour on your
kneading surface to prevent sticking.
• Let the dough rest while you scrape out and
grease the mixing bowl.
• Knead the dough again for 2 to 3 minutes.
Let It Rise:
• Return the dough to the bowl and turn
it over once to grease the top.
• Cover with a damp towel and keep warm until
the dough doubles in bulk, about 1 to 2 hours.
• Punch down the dough with your fist and briefly
knead out any air bubbles.
• Cut the dough in half and shape into two Italian-
or French-style loaves.
• Place the loaves on a cookie sheet generously
sprinkled with cornmeal.
• Let the loaves rest for 5 minutes.
• Lightly slash the tops of the loaves 3 or more
times diagonally and brush them with cold water.
• Place on rack in a cold oven with a roasting
pan full of boiling water on the oven bottom.
• Bake at 400°F for 35 to 45 minutes, until
the crust is golden brown and sounds hollow to the touch.
* For a lighter, crustier bread let your shaped loaves
rise for 45 minutes.
*Preheat the oven and roasting pan with water to 500°F
for 15 minutes.
* Mist or lightly brush the loaves with cold water,
place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
*Lower the temperature to 400°F and bake for 10
