OLD FREEDOM TRAIN. A WALDORF INSPIRED ALPHABET~SHAYNE JACKMAN
Based on the time tested Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf education method of introducing the abstract letters of the alphabet with enlivening characterisation, this book is a beautifully illustrated gem that will delight parents and children alike. Each letter is introduced in a hand drawn picture, and accompanied by a verse, poem or nursery rhyme.
The Foreword introduces the story of how the book came about, and there is an Afterword about the Waldorf approach to literacy and teaching the letters of the alphabet. The words and music of the song, This Old Freedom Train, are also included. This book will bring a sense of joy and discovery to learning for both parent and child.
Shayne Jackman lives in Sydney with her two children. She is an artist and photographer. She believes that the best learning is that which comes when both heart and head are engaged.
