The Compleat Thunks Book by Ian Gilbert

This is one of our favourite books of 2017 so far. Ian Gilbert’s Compleat Thunks Book is brilliant for introducing children from about six years upwards to philosophy and thinking and forming an argument.

It’s a great resource for the classroom as well as stimulating debate during travel or other times you need to entertain or keep children occupied. This is ideal to take to the beach or on holiday, especially camping when rain can ruin the best made plans.

One of my favourites is 234. Is it more the case that they behave like that because they own a BMW than they own a BMW because they behave like that? And one for the children – 294. Does school encourage to you be selfish?

Hours of entertainment and family fun to be had from this one small book.
