Philosophy & Children
Picture Book Philosophy
Thomas Wartenberg explains his method of introducing philosophy to children.
Toad arrives at Frog’s house with a batch of delicious, freshly baked cookies. The two amphibians tuck in, only to find that, to their dismay, they cannot stop. Frog declares that what they need is will-power – the ability, he says, to try to not do what you really want to do. He then tries to put the cookies out of harm’s way; but none of his efforts are successful, as Toad points out. So the desperate Frog gives all the cookies to the birds.
