A fun, visual guide for kids about the tricky topic of philosophy: what it covers, why it’s important, and who the big philosophers are!

Learning about philosophy doesn’t have to be tricky either – this guide features fun activities and quizzes, bright pages and breaks the information into bite-size chunks so that it’s easy to digest.
