A Waldorf book review ~ Wish Soup

Wish Soup and other seasonal tales

{This is a sponsored post in which my honest opinion is shared}

Wish Soup has captivated the hearts and minds of my little people.

Each evening as I sing ‘It’s time to tell a story, a story, a story. It’s time to tell a story and get ready for bed’, they happily call out ‘Wish Soup, Wish Soup please mum!’

The Rosewood Sword

Wish Soup is a beautifully imagined seasonal treasury which has been magically written by Rachel Larmer and warmly illustrated by Jo Lory.

With a lovely Australian backdrop, romantic illustrations, and wonderfully Waldorf inspired stories we quite simply adore Wish Soup!

And each evening, we eagerly anticipate where the next story might take us. Three magical and enticing adventures bring each season to life.

So far we have followed Matilda and Peppercorn into the forest where they met Lady Spring and saved the bees. Learned a valuable lesson in the title story, Wish Soup about listening to our inner voice and the power of wishes…

Sophie’s grandmother led her up the wooden stairs by the golden glow of a candle. Giving Sophie a soft kiss, she tucked her snugly under the blankets. “You know, when I was a girl, I used to make wishes,” she said, pulling back the curtains. A single star shone softly against the night sky. “Did they ever come true?” Sophie asked. “Sometimes,” her grandmother replied.

Wish Soup in the candlelight

We have dreamed about mermaid’s treasure on a hot night with little Imogen. And visited the fairies and elves on the banks of Lemon Myrtle Creek…

Tristan waited, looking up at the castle with a sense of wonder. Never did he expect his day to be filled with such surprise! Finally the door opened, and the King and Queen of the Fairies appeared. Each wore a crown woven out of branches, covered in sparkling jewels. Tristan bowed down on his knee, lost for words.

Wish Soup in the book nook

Wish Soup is a treasury of sweet, magical and gentle stories that still answer the need for adventure that children (and adults) have.

It is fair to say it has found a place in our hearts, as well as our book nook *wink*
