Product Description

Review

Tiffany Poirier is to be congratulated for her wonderful achievement! Thomas Wartenberg Ph.D, Author and Professor of Philosophy, Mount Holyoke College, Author of Existentialism: A Beginner's Guide.I gave the manuscript to my eight year old daughter. I asked her how she liked it and she gave it four stars (on a four star scale). When I asked her what she liked about it, she said that she liked answering the questions (raised in the book) in her head. James O. Young, Ph.D., Philosophy Department Chair, University of VictoriaA charming little book for the philosopher that's inside every child. Angus Tayor, Ph.D, Lecturer, Department of Philosophy, University of Victoria, Author of Animals and Ethics (2003)

"Q is for Question" is a beautifully illustrated book, sure to broaden your children's vocabularies and spark their imaginations. The author (who I suspect is the little girl in the gorgeous pictures) has given us a wonderful tool to have discussion with our children we might not otherwise have had. Thank you, Tiffany!

My mother bought this book for my 7 year old for Christmas. When we sat down and read it together, my daughter's reaction was hilarious! I have never read a book to her which gave her such "pause". On many pages she grew wide eyed like her brain might explode from such big ideas! It made her think in ways she has never thought before! The book has lead to many conversations between her and I. I also see that as she grows up and comes back to the book, her answers to the questions may change and her interpretation of the questions will become different and deeper. I highly recommend this book to any parent or grandparent who wants to give their loved one the gift of BIG IDEAS and a real BRAIN STRETCH!

Makes you wonder why all books don't make you think this deeply.
It's fun to look at with children and watch them discover their meta-cognition at work.
It also makes you, as a parent, think about the world you're raising your child in.

Good Stuff!
