Philosophy and Children’s Literature Webinar for Librarians

October 252:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Online IN United States

Join Jana Mohr Lone, executive director of the Prindle Institute’s partner organization Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization (PLATO) for a webinar on ways that librarians can use children’s literature to open up a philosophical dialogue with young library patrons. Children’s literature is full of philosophical questions and ideas, reflecting an awareness of children’s propensities to think about life’s big questions. This webinar will explore ways to inspire exploration with children about their big questions through children’s books. We will examine several examples of philosophically-suggestive works, and will engage as a group in a philosophical inquiry based on a picture book. You will come away with ideas and resources for involving children in philosophical questioning and discovery through literature.

This webinar is designed especially for librarians, but is open to all interested parents and educators in Indiana. Register for free through the Indiana State Library.
