A Sneetch is a Sneetch and Other Philosophical Discoveries : Finding Wisdom in Children's Literature Paperback / softback

Description

Taking Picture Books Seriously: What can we learn about philosophy through children's books?

This warm and charming volume casts a spell on adult readers as it unveils the surprisingly profound philosophical wisdom contained in children's picture books, from Dr Seuss's Sneetches to William Steig's Shrek!.

With a light touch and good humor, Wartenberg discusses the philosophical ideas in these classic stories, and provides parents with a practical starting point for discussing philosophical issues with their children.

Accessible and multi-layered, it answers questions like, Is it okay for adults to deceive kids?

What's the difference between saying the Mona Lisa is a great painting and vanilla is your favorite flavor?

Each chapter includes illustrations commissioned especially for this book.
