Inventing Kindergarten: An Autobiography of Friedrich Froebel

Froebel, Friedrich

Established in the 1830s by German educator Friedrich Froebel, Kindergarten was designed to teach young children about art, design, mathematics, and natural history. Norman Brosterman demonstrates how Kindergarten went on to influence modern culture through design, modern art and toys. A New York Times Notable Book, Inventing Kindergarten uses extraordinary visual materials to reconstruct this successful system, which grew to become a familiar institution throughout the world by the end of the 19th century.
