THE SUN SEED

Jan Schubert

Book Cover spacer

"Early one spring morning, a little seed woke up after her long winter sleep. She yawned and stretched. With a loud CRACK her hard brown jacket fell away. 'Oh!' said the surprised seed. The earth above felt warm."

...this was just the beginning of big changes to come.

The colorful illustrations in this book are made by the author from dyed wool fibers, felted together to create a solid piece of "fabric". She employed a technique known as "dry", or needle", felting, which requires a small hand tool called a felting needle with barbs along the shaft to catch the fibers as it pierces the surface of the wool and binds them together. Jan describes the experience as "painting with a needle". (Ages 3 - 5).

Jan Schubert has been a Waldorf early childhood educator for more than twenty years. In a one-room-school house on sixty acres in northern California, she founded and operated a preschool program. She holds a BA in ECE and has taught kindergarten at the Davis Waldorf School (Davis, California), where she currently teaches preschool. Jan also worked in a Lifeways program. She has a lifelong love of handwork and textiles, which is expressed in her visual storytelling and puppetry.
