If this record of a happy year spent with two children will help to make some other woman study more earnestly Froebel's great book I shall be satisfied. To any in whose heart it may awaken this impulse I would recommend Mr. Denton J. Snider's "Mother's-Play-Songs", and Miss Susan E. Blow's "Letters to a Mother" from both of which books I have been permitted to quote freely. I wish also to acknowledge my obligations to D. Appleton and Company for their courtesy in allowing me avail myself of the illustrations from their "Mottos and Commentaries of Froebel's Mother-Play-Book", which are the reduced fac-simile of the larger pictures we used with these children.
