A Waldorf Alphabet Book

Based on the time tested Rudolf Steiner/Waldorf education method of introducing the abstract letters of the alphabet with enlivening characterization, Old Freedom Train 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.

“My two daughters cannot get enough of this beautiful book. It is both worn and ragged now-adorned with those telltale signs of a most loved book. The illustrations are beautiful, and my older daughter is beside herself with joy, as she has just begun to realize that they form letters!” —Emily Murphy, USA

“This is a beautiful, pastel coloured, illustrated alphabet book with a difference. Hidden within each page is the corresponding letter the illustration and poem are focused on… children may or may not notice (the letters) on the first reading but once they do, they will have such fun finding all the other letters in the alphabet hidden inside their correlating pictures.” —Martine Horvath, eye volume 16
