For curious minds from age eight to 80.

My eight-year-old God-daughter stays with us two days a week. The chapter-stories are short, well crafted and she seemed to enjoy them. Then after the third story she announced that she didn’t like that green book about being curious.
This led to a discussion of the importance of words as mind pictures that we tell each other what we mean. After an extended conversation using the stories in the book she came to an understanding of the importance of the concept each story illustrates. She now has a special place she keeps the book for her next session.
My wife overheard our discussion of one of the first lesson and said, “I never knew that. Everyone should read that book.
Based on my experience age eight to 10 is probably the earliest entry age. The book works best in a one-on-one format with the adult questioning and listening. Limiting stories to one per day, after a brief review of previous stories, has the most impact.
She is now so proud that she can explain the word philosophy.
