SFK combines elegantly written chidren's stories with clear insightful expositions on the underlying philosophical thinking. There is no better way to interest elementary school chidren in philosophy and make that learning experience exciting.

Both of my children, ages 5 and 9, liked this book very much, as did I. The stories are beautifully written and contain a central philosphical theme that is discussed after each story. Not only did my children learn from this book, but I, never having taken a phiosophy course in college, now have a reasoanble grasp of what epistemology, esthetics, and Zen Buddhism are all about. This is a very unique book that deserves the attentiion of any parent with children in elementary school.
