Teaching Through StoriesJane and Jeremy Learn to Knit is the first in a series on teaching knitting handwork. This complete guide is written for teachers and parents who want to teach this popular craft to children through storytelling and personal connection. 

This knitting handwork book is a practical guide to creating and telling your own knitting stories, and connecting with listeners, with examples of actual stories from classroom knitting lessons.

It introduces important pedagogical foundations and offers suggestions for managing a busy handwork classroom. The last chapter shares ideas about selecting patterns and materials and over a dozen of the best patterns the author has developed.

Teaching through Stories embodies an unhurried approach to education used successfully for a hundred years in Waldorf schools around the world.
