Editorial Reviews

Review

We owe it to our children and to the future of our world to heed the lessons of this book. Call it the work of real philosophy, or call it simply the joyful work of nourishing the love of Truth and the Good. Whatever we call it, this warm and wise guide shows us why we must bring philosophy to our children (and, at the same time, to ourselves).
-- Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy

Jana Mohr Lone is at the forefront of the burgeoning movement to support philosophical inquiry among children. In this book she draws on years of experience with children, teachers, and parents to offer--in accessible, lucid prose--workable suggestions for how to inspire children to philosophical exploration. The book could just as well have been, What to Expect When They're Reflecting, and deserves to be mandatory reading for anyone teaching or raising a curious child.
-- Mitch Green, University of Virginia

Excellent book for those new to philosophical thinking with children. It has lots of great ideas and suggestions to get you started. If you are more experience in this area it is a great read. It’s easy to understand.
