Explore 20 of the biggest questions of our day. This book teaches children to think critically in a world which needs young thinkers. Why do I think? What is bias? What happens when we disagree? And how do we talk to each other? Jamia Wilson expertly explores the difficult questions kids may ask by introducing a diverse range of thinkers and luminaries.

Each question is introduced in lively prose before a timeline lays out how different thinkers of the world have approached each question. With vibrant art from Andrea Pippins to illustrate each visionary. Chapters are organised into five sections: Identity, Life, Truth, Culture, and Creativity.

Questions include:

Who are you? Who are we?

Why do I think?

What is gender?

Why do we exist?

What happens when we die?

What is right and wrong?

What is bias? Do I have it?

What is freedom?

What is an imagination

What is memory?

Stylish and accessible, it brings philosophy to the next generation in a warm and inclusive way.
