In this address delivered to the International Kindergarten Union at Pittsburgh, PA, Harrison discusses the expansion of Kindergarten thought and examines some previous evolutions of the field, which include: mother-play books, self-expression through play (particularly by way of rhythmic use of the body as a means of obtaining self-control), Froebel Gifts, and Occupations. Includes sequences for selected Gifts.
