A Child's Work: Freedom and Play in Froebel's Educational Theory and Practice
An important study of the continuing debate over methods of primary education and of the conflict between child-centred and more traditional education; concern about the role of the teacher; and the renewed challenge of 'play' as a tool of education. Froebel wrote, 'Play is a mirror of life', providing the means of intellectual, social, emotional and physical development, and self-discipline and social behaviour.
