This is an invaluable guide covering all the usual steps in a Philosophy session, combined with new ideas and game suggestions. I love the personal philosophy question that comes inside each book too! During recent INSET I suggested it (and also the pocket Thinkers Games book) as essential material for all the staff. An amazing book at an amazing price!

A brilliant book, handy size, well laid out, good guidance for the 10 steps. Indispensable to our teacher training in Nepal where everybody wants one!
Whether you are new to p4c or an experienced practitioner this should be part of your toolkit. Just buy it!

If you're looking for something to genuinely help you with P4C in the classroom, this is a book you cannot do without! Jason's well written, easy to understand help guide is, as an experienced Primary school practitioner, something I really appreciated when it came to understanding a few key points relating to P4C. Especially helpful is the question quadrant and relating that to a fairy tale. My class is so much clearer about the construction of philosophical questions through using that framework. Great stuff - thanks Jason!

This is an excellent little book that gives you some brilliant ideas that you can develop and adapt to meet your own classroom needs. I found myself going off on a creative wave after reading some of the sections and has definitely stimulated my interest into this area further. A very worth while yet short read that will give you a new way of thinking.

I have ordered and given out a copy for each member of staff at my school as it's a great non-threatening little booklet that explains the principles of P4C for the busy teacher and provides "ready-to-run" ideas that can be integrated into your classroom practice very quickly adding a whole new dimension. Well worth the low price!

An excellent purchase: this little book is clear, inspiring and practical. Full of ideas that work with a variety of age-groups, it is also thought-provoking and a genuinely interesting read. I have successfully used it for longer discussion sessions and as quick 'transition' activities with children as young as four.

Was recommended this book as a new teacher and I am not disappointed. It is small and concise and straight to the point. It gives you clear and easy to understand examples and has really got my brain thinking about how I could use this in the classroom. For the money definitely worth a buy!

This is a bit of a nightmare to read as the layout and typography are really busy and confused. I'm sure that there are some fantastic ideas here but have put it too one side until I have the energy to try to find them. Tiny book -fits in your handbag !

Really useful pocket book, which is still living in my handbag. Gives a general understanding of Philosophy for Children in a concise manner, although leaves you wanting to discover more - which is a positive for the learning of all children!
