children's books as philosophy teaching tools

Philosophical reasoning taught in the second grade.
how great is this?!


  1. This is really interesting - I like the idea of kids learning to think this way because of kids books. You know, I also have this problem though - where whenever I try to come up with a story I think well, what is this about? What is this teaching kids? And I think maybe that's wrong - because that makes it less fun. I've been thinking much more as an adult about books...ugh.
    Anyway, that's probably for a longer discussion.

  2. yes, definitely this is a super important point to mull over. probably since we are adults, we have to just fight against this way of thinking all the time and work on remembering what it was like in our minds when we were little.

    longer discussion for sure.
