fbook005: FRIEDRICH FROEBEL his life, times & significance


Category book

By Dr Peter Weston 2nd edition (2000)

This book by Dr Peter Weston is a good general introduction to Friedrich Froebel that places him in the turbulent political and intellectual context of his times. Illustrated throughout, it takes the reader on a journey through the life and times of Froebel as well as describing the ‘Froebel System’ and a brief introduction to the Gifts and Occupations.

The final chapter of the book identifies the enduring aspects of Froebel’s work which need to be emphasised and advocated in the twenty-first century.
