The Philosophers' Clubby Christopher Phillips, Kim Doner (Illustrator)
What is silence? What is wisdom? How do you know you're here? Socratic dialogue—for kids? At least the answer to this last question is an easy, resounding Yes! The rest you'll have to think about and discuss with your friends, which is just what philosopher Christopher Phillips is hoping for. He has long been leading thinkers of all ages on a thoughtful and thought-filled quest for knowledge, and this picturebook models for young children that mulling over some of life's big questions can be done anytime, anywhere. A finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award in the design/illustration category. • A novel teacher resource.• Educators, please visit our Resources section, above, for teaching guides and curricula.

Meet the Author
As a child, KIM DONER aspired to be a Ballerina-Veterinarian-Artist-- dancing at night, saving animals by day, and summering in Africa to draw wild animals from a treehouse. Today, she has made those dreams a reality-sharing her love of the arts through her award-winning children's books, rehabilitating wildlife, and planning a return to Africa with her husband. Kim lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Called a "modern-day Socrates" CHRISTOPHER PHILLIPS travels the U.S., facilitating hundreds of Socrates Cafés where ordinary people gather to ask questions—and questions about questions. He is the founder and executive director of the nonprofit Society for Philosophical Inquiry, and the author of one book for grown-ups, Socrates Café: A Fresh Taste of Philosophy.
