View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Established in the 1830s by German educator Friedrich Froebel, Kindergarten was designed to teach young children about art, design, mathematics, and natural history. Norman Brosterman demonstrates how Kindergarten went on to influence modern culture through design, modern art and toys. A New York Times Notable Book, Inventing Kindergarten uses extraordinary visual materials to reconstruct this successful system, which grew to become a familiar institution throughout the world by the end of the 19th century. Portions of Brosterman's collection, beautifully photographed herein, were added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in 2012. Originally published in 1997 by Harry N. Abrams, this 2014 reprint by the author features minor edits and additions. Hardcover with full color dust jacket. 160pp. 130 illustrations, 55 in color
