Now what would be interesting to talk about? These 50 philosophical questions encourage children to think further and initiate a different kind of talk; at home on the kitchen table or together in the classroom.

Why philosophise with children?
But… philosophising with children, why would you do that?
It can be very surprising to philosophise with children. Their ways of reasoning are often very touching, original, creative and amazingly smart. It is good for their social, emotional, moral, and lingual development. But moreover, they learn to think in a critical and creative way. But the best reason is that you get to know children in a very different way. You don’t just find out what they think, but also how they think.
With the Tickle-Talks, 50 philosophical questions for kids, anyone can philosophise with children; at home on the kitchen table or at school in the classroom.
