Manuscript length: 15,920 words. Age level: grade three.

The book is used by parents and teachers from kindergarten to grade 3 - many involved in Waldorf education. While the language is appropriate for a grade 3 child to read by themselves, and therefore fairly easy, the book is artistically written with attention to sound quality in choice of words, names and structure of sentences. There are a number of small poems and verses. In addition, the language chosen pays attention to the rhythms of spoken English - however, the translation would have to ring true to the German ear and be playful and imaginative for the German speaking child. In other words, a purely intellectual translation will not do. I would do it myself except my German grammar is hopeless! :(
