Event: Using picture books to introduce philosophy to children

An upcoming event at the Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre in Edinburgh may be of interest to members of OPEN-Scotland.com. The event talks to two children’s authors about the role that picture books can play in stimulating curiosity and philosophical thinking:

“How do we support the deep thinking and questions of our youngest readers? Children’s authors Alison Murray and Vivian French join Dr Claire Cassidy, from the University of Strathclyde, to explore how picture books can be used to introduce philosophy to children. They look at examples of picture books that can be used to stimulate curiosity and discuss what can be done to facilitate philosophical thinking at a young age.”

Full details of the event can be found here.
