FROEBEL-PARKER HAS ANOTHER BOOK IN PROGRESS:
AUNT BARONESS AND THE FIRST KINDERGARTEN
Froebel-Parker has another book in progress. Entitled Aunt Baroness and the First Kindergarten, it is the story of Baroness Bertha von Marentholtz-Buelow and her contribution to Kindergarten.

Serin and Solin are the grandchildren of Robert, Baron von Marenholtz who lives in the greater Portland metro area.

Serin recently read the English version of FRIEDRICH and the FIRST KINDERGARTEN to her third grade class. Her ancestress, Baroness Bertha Marie von Marenholtz-Buelow, is the Baroness that appears in the book. Without her assistance the Kindergarten Movement would not have met with so much international success. She used her connections to help her friend Friedrich Froebel and later to establish kindergartens throughout the world!

Serin, age 8, reading to her brother, Solin.
