    The author starts out with a brief biography of Friedrich Froebel and his development of Kintergarten and a history of its spread, then looks at each of the gifts developed by Froebel He then looks at modern art and claims that these gifts were a significant influence on several modern artists and schools of art I think there s a good case to be made, but not quite as good as he thinks it is Just saying that it s likely that various people came in contact with kintergarten doesn t make it so I a [...]

    Wow Who would have thought such a simple program kindergarten would have impacted modern design, art and architecture so much I recommended it to my friends who I know have an interest in art, architecture and design because they took classes in it or majored in it , but it would also be interesting to others who are interested in child development and the history of one of the most universal children programs the Garden of Children

    Amazing study of a way of teaching geometric, experiential thinking I admit that I didn t READ this book, as much as studying the illustrations and their captions, and skimming snacking on the text But the chapter on modern artists who were affected by kindergarten training is awesome, as are the photographs of the now antique gifts little wooden boxes of interchangeable parts that were an integral part of the first kindergarten.

    This book is a fascinating read tying together three of my favorite subjects history, child development and art The book is equally enjoyable in graphics and text Perhaps the author went a bit too far in the end suggesting that the original froebel kinder garten created modern art but its an interesting idea.
