Summary
Contains examples of children's books to be used as philosophical examples, with discussion questions. Wartenberg gives advice on how to construct a "learner-centered" classroom, in which children discuss philosophical issues with one another as they respond to open-ended questions by saying whether they agree or disagree with what others have said. Written in a clear and accessible style, the book explains why it is important to allow young children access to philosophy during primary-school education
