“Hurrah for Amy Leask! She’s a genius for writing books for kids about philosophy. She rightly believes that kids are thinkers and are perfectly capable of exploring big ideas. She manages to make philosophy not only approachable, but fun and engaging, for kids. She also has a lot of knowledge about kids’ non-fiction books in general and she shared that with us in a lively TVOParents Book Club discussion about non-fiction books. She was able to bring kids’ non-fiction to life.”
- Cheryl Jackson, Host/Producer, TVO Parents
“I share this organization’s innovative materials at my workshops for teachers and parents interested in bringing philosophy to children. I applaud such an enthusiastic effort to honor the promise and natural abilities of child philosophers.”

“Philosophy for kids is a splendid idea in general-and the ThinkAboutIt books are splendid in particular, not merely as ideas, but splendid in the practice of both words and drawings. The books can open your children’s eyes, stretching them to the fascinations of the world, from robots to free choices to the colours of flowers and just what is matter and mind.”
