Side 36 - Froebel, with our minds. There would be fewer sullen, quarrelsome, dull-witted men or women if there were fewer children starved or fed improperly in heart and brain.

Side 37 - ... observed. When weather forbids use of the garden, there is the great, airy room which should contain cupboards, with a place for every child's toys and implements ; so that a habit of the strictest neatness may be properly maintained. Up to the age of seven there is to be no book work and no ink work ; but only at school a free and brisk, but systematic strengthening of the body, of the senses, of the intellect, and of the affections, managed in such a way as to leave the child prompt for subsequent...

Side 82 - ... degree of warmth, produced by wearing more clothing of a different kind, does not produce the same effect.
