We want the children of the future to have the skills and confidence to form their own ideas, and have the confidence and resilience to speak up for what they believe in.

Includes: Inspirational case studies Facilitation techniques and information on philosophical concepts A list of recommended books and resources, online quizzes, thinking games and useful web links Question-board activities to stimulate daily thinking The book is visually interesting with lots of annotated sessions, drawings, photos, and ideas for resources. A must for all early years and primary practitioners.
