You might also like to read a book called "Inventing Kindergarten" by
Norman Brosterman. It discusses Friedrich Froebel and the 19th C.
Kindergarten movement, an antecedant to Dewey and later Montessori.
Interesting. Some of Brosterman's thesis may be a little far-fetched, but
the history of the Kindergarten movement is worth reading.
