This user-friendly manual will help teachers to introduce Philosophy for Children (P4C) to early years and primary-aged children. One hour of P4C a week can raise pupil IQ scores by an average of 6.5 points, and has been shown to develop thinking skills, emotional literacy and awareness of citizenship even in very young children. This teacher's manual includes:

- expert guidance on how to facilitate successful P4C sessions

- advice on using stories, poems and other stimuli as a starting point

- strategies that lead to fruitful thinking

- tips on integrating philosophy into school and home

- inspiring case studies

- games and activities to promote deep thinking.

The full But Why? resource pack featuring four stunningly-illustrated storybooks specifically designed to provoke philosophical enquiry at different levels, can also be purchased from Continuum (ISBN 9781855393028).
