The book Old Freedom Train was conceived when Australian artist Shayne Jackman was searching for a Steiner/Waldorf alphabet frieze for her children's playroom, and couldn't find she decided to make one herself. She found that using colorful pencils in soft shades to draw sweet images was soothing to the soul, energizing, and satisfying, so she decided to make a book. Adding special words from her experience as a mother of children in a Steiner playgroup and preschool seemed the perfect fit. Thus, Old Freedom Train: A Waldorf Inspired Alphabet Book and "Old Freedom Train - Steiner Inspired Alphabet Frieze" were born.
