Jakob Streit

Jakob Streit (1910-2009) was born in Switzerland, in the picturesque village of Spiez. He was a teacher for many years, using Waldorf teaching methods in his public school classroom. He regularly told stories for his students, and between 1940 and 2004 he wrote over forty children’s books encompassing nature stories, Bible stories, biographies and historical stories.
