comment for last post about schools

for some reason, my last post won’t allow any more comments, so here’s one from Brooke!

Asalamu Walaikum,

Inshallah you and alllllll yours are well in health and iman. I’ve been trying to leave a comment on asiya2 about schools, but it won’t stick…I dunno…so here’s what it is……..

Inshallah, I think the next generation of Muslims will start doing things like this…in the meantime…I want to list some of my favorite resources. Yes, they have a homeschool bend, but they are all more early child information that I think you would really enjoy/benefit from, inshallah.

I think these three are really the best:


You Are your Child’d First Teacher (from birth to five years) By Rahima Baldwin Dancy

I’ve never known anyone affiliated with Waldorf that hasn’t read it and by the by, she is Muslim. She had a Muslim/Waldorf web group but it’s really quiet…Here is her website:

 Lots of good Tending the Hearth and the Heart stuff on there!


Children at Play Using Waldorf Principles to Foster Childhood Development by Heidi Britz-Crecelius …you can find this one at:

I drool a little when I visit this site! Soooo many good books!


Oak Meadow IS a homeschool Waldorf-style curriculum. But I think anyone would benefit from reading their Heart Of Learning and Home Teacher’s Process Manual. I have only read the one for kindergarten-third, but they do have a seperate set for preschool that I would like to read someday, inshallah…


Some others that I think mostly reiterate what you can get from the above…but are also good reads are:


Beyond the Rainbow Bridge : Nurturing our children from birth to seven by Barbara J. Patterson

 Kindergarten with your Three to Six Year Old by Donna Simmons

Okay-dokey. Gonna go tend my hearth now

Love and Salams~Brooke

    assalam alaikum!
    some of this stuff is amazing 🙂
    thank you for your comment, i always find it encouraging when i come across other women who successfully overcame their bfeeding hurdles. iA, things will get better, for now Hana is on a combination of breastmilk and formula – i guess some breastmilk is better than none, huh? i’ve set a goal for myself – to feed her more breastmilk than formula by the time she turns a month old – i’m going to express like crazy, every hour, 10 minutes, iA. please pray that it works. if it doesn’t, i’ll have done what i could.
    also, no, i’m not using any soap products on Hana’s clothes, sheets or anything. the only thing that could have caused this has to be the constant swaddling in a warm blanket when it’s so hot here. i’m going to get it checked out regardless, i don’t want to take a risk. again, thank you so much for your encouraging comment.
