A guide for parents and educators to sharing the enduring ideas of the biggest minds throughout the centuries—from Plato to Jane Addams—with the "littlest" minds.

Children are no strangers to cruelty and courage, to love and to loss, and in this unique book teacher and educational consultant Marietta McCarty reveals that they are, in fact, natural philosophers. Drawing on a program she has honed in schools around the country over the last fifteen years, Little Big Minds guides parents and educators in introducing philosophy to K-8 children in order to develop their critical thinking, deepen their appreciation for others, and brace them for the philosophical quandaries that lurk in all of our lives, young or old.

Arranged according to themes-including prejudice, compassion, and death-and featuring the work of philosophers from Plato and Socrates to the Dalai Lama and Martin Luther King Jr., this step-by-step guide to teaching kids how to think philosophically is full of excellent discussion questions, teaching tips, and group exercises.

Review:

"Marietta, what a breath of fresh air this book is... this takes a totally different approach!"
- Diane Rehm, The Diane Rehm Show

"If your book club likes to talk about ideas more than plotlines, "Your handsome book arrived on my desk a few weeks ago, and certainly brought back many pleasant memories of your college days in my classes at Hollins. I admired you then, too, for your passion and talent for philosophy. But now there is this wonderful book! It looks splendid, and reads beautifully. This resource is going to be indispensable."
- Lawrence C. Becker, Fellow of Hollins University, Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, College of William & Mary
