Description

Explore 20 of the biggest questions of our day. This book teaches children to think critically in a world which needs young thinkers.

Why do I think? What is bias? What happens when we disagree? And how do we talk to each other? Jamia Wilson expertly explores the difficult questions kids may ask by introducing a diverse range of thinkers and luminaries. 

Each question is introduced in lively prose before a timeline lays out how different thinkers of the world have approached each question. With vibrant art from Andrea Pippins to illustrate each visionary. 

Chapters are organised into five sections: Identity, Life, Truth, Culture, and Creativity. Questions include:
 

  • Who are you? Who are we?
  • Why do I think?
  • What is gender?
  • Why do we exist?
  • What happens when we die?
  • What is right and wrong?
  • What is bias? Do I have it?
  • What is freedom?
  • What is an imagination
  • What is memory?

Stylish and accessible, it brings philosophy to the next generation in a warm and inclusive way.
