I’m using it in analogy to racism or sexism, as “acting or thinking as…

    My granddaughter is 8 and home schooled. My daughter does not have much spare money but would love to invest in teaching P4c. Which books do you recommend for us to use. Thank you .

      Hi Sue, thank you for your message. To get started, and at low-cost, we’d recommend our two minibooks:

      Thinkers Games
      Philosophy Circles: Embed P4C in Your Curriculum

      Each can be found in our shop at £2.50 each, and we feel help teachers make an immediate start with P4c in their lessons. I’ve no doubt your daughter would find them highly useful on a daily basis.

      Do let us know if you’ve any further questions.

      Tom and Jason
