When two curious friends venture outside to picnic and ponder, they visit a Tree of Knowledge, to ask an important question about knowledge itself.The Tree gently guides them on a journey of self-enlightenment. The two children learn that knowledge is inside of them, unique and shareable, and that it grows naturally through play and exploration.This unique book teaches us about the importance of play-based learning and reminds us of the wisdom in nature. It illuminates themes of interconnectedness, respect, self- empowerment, emotional intelligence, and philosophy. The Little Philosophers and the Tree of Knowledge is as suitable for bedtime reading as it is for classroom teaching.
