This lively portrait of a pioneer of modern education is a refreshing reminder of the essential role of play and creative exploration in the development of children. Froebels methods provide a much-needed antidote to the current emphasis on high-stakes testing and accelerated curricula--a corruption, as Herbert Kohl argues in his foreword, of the original concept of kindergartens as childrens gardens of learning.
