In 1900 Denton Jacques Snider wrote about Friedrich (Frederick) Froebel and his life experiences which led to the founding of the first kindergarten. Over a century later, a Froebel family member and author of two children’s books about Froebel and kindergarten, expands the publication designed for readers in the Victorian age to make it a timeless reference.
