Now out: Big Ideas For Young Thinkers 20 questions about life and the universe by Jamia Wilson

The author of this book recalls that she was a child who always questioned. Often the author found her answers (or more questions) through her reading. With this book, she is encouraging young readers to think deeply and not be afraid to question.

This book provides an introduction to philosophy and life’s big questions, as for example, what happens when we die, what is human nature and so much more. This title is divided into five chapters, Identity, Life, Truth, Culture, and Creativity. Within each are questions to explore and the thoughts of philosophers and thinkers on the topic. For example, there are quotes on human nature from Plato, Salman Rushdie, Noam Chomskey and others. In a section on is god real, there are quotes from Maya Angelou and Karl Marx.

Early in the book, the author suggests ways to respectfully listen and disagree with others. She also notes that everyone can change their mind about something.

This book is colorfully and brightly illustrated. It is a great resource.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange f
