Big Ideas for Little Kids: We’re on the Dust Jacket

Thursday, August 27, 2009.

On February 5, 2007, we published episode 94 of Just One More Book!! It was a chat with Professor Thomas Wartenberg about the often overlooked philosophical concerns of young children, the deep philosophical issues raised by children’s books and the genesis of Philosophy For Children (not to be confused with P4C) — an innovative college course which harnesses the power of children’s books to help children learn to think about and discuss issues of philosophy, politics and social justice.

This spring, Professor Wartenberg gave us a sneak peek of his new book Big Ideas for Little Kids, an inspiring guide to teaching philosophy through children’s literature, and asked for our opinion.

If you want to know what we thought, check out the dust jacket:

We’re honoured!

The book is being released tomorrow, August 28.
