New Book on Picture Books

Dear colleagues,

may I draw your attention to a new book on children`s literature and philosophy for children by Eva Zoller Morf, an expert on philosophy for children in Switzerland: "Selber denken macht schlau. Grosse Fragen für kleine Philosophen und Philosophinnen" (Think yourself and get clever. Big questions for small philosophers) in Zytglogge Verlag Zurich 2010, ISBN 978-3-7296-0808-5.

She uses picture books as a basis to philosophical discussions with children from 3 to 13 years on questions like "Where was I before I was born, what happens when I`m dead, why am I alive etc." and documents her work. Her documentation of children`s reactions to picture books is impressive (Eva Zoller Morf`s website is with links to English websites on similar subjects).

Ms Zoller Morf`s previous books on philosophy for children using picture books have already been translated into Polish, Estonian, Czech and Korean, maybe someone would be interested in translating her new book into English or French..

Best regards
