Philosophy in Classrooms and Beyond: New Approaches to Picture-Book Philosophy, by Thomas E Wartenberg (ed)

Author:

Tim Sprod

Abstract

Using picture books as a means of initiating philosophical discussions with younger children is an idea that has occurred to a number of people involved in P4C/Philosophy in Schools in various parts of the world. Some went on to develop support materials to encourage teachers to go beyond reading picture books to/with their classes to drawing the students into a community of philosophical inquiry. Early examples include Karin Murris (then in the UK), Chris de Haan and colleagues, and (independently) myself in Australia, and Tom Wartenberg in the USA. As well as Matthew Lipman and Ann Sharp, Tom’s work drew on the writings of Gareth Matthews, both in his 1980 book Philosophy and the Young Child, and his regular columns on the philosophy in picture books in the journal Thinking.
