Teaching Children Philosophy

Most teachers know by now that they need to take their students far beyond the Knowledge Level questions when examining a story or book.  This website offers intriguing philosophical discussions for many popular pieces of literature.  For example, I used to read the fabulous book, Knuffle Bunny to my daughter when she was younger.  It never occurred to me that there were deeper questions to ask than, “Why was the little girl so upset with her father?”  There are many resources like this on this website for those of us who want take our classroom questioning to a higher level.
