An exciting board book series that asks deep questions in a wonderfully accessible way.

Even little children have big questions about life. Imaginations are unique to every human on earth and René Descartes believed that is what makes every person their own true self. By thinking about what we imagine and how all people imagine differently, kids can work on understanding others’ perspectives and points of view and become more empathetic. Imagination with René Descartes will help them see how using your imagination makes you “you” and understanding the same about friends and family is an important part of getting along in a community.

Look for all four Big Ideas for Little Philosophers board books: Equality with Simone de Beauvoir, Truth with Socrates, Happiness with Aristotle, and Imagination with Rene Descartes.

Series Overview: Four simultaneously published board books in Summer 20: Truth with Socrates, Happiness with Aristotle, Equality with Simone de Beauvoir, and Imagination with René Descartes.
