"I am reviewing this book for The School of Life and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review
Uses everyday situations to explain how you might be feeling and how others might think you are feeling – and these don’t always match
Introduces us to some great philosophers from different cultures, some of whom I hadn’t heard of.
A very good introduction to philosophy which can be read in small sections so it doesn’t overwhelm you.
I haven’t shared it with any children or young people yet but will do

"I was impressed by the title of this book “big ideas for curious minds” but as soon as I started reading it, I came to know it’s meant for kids. However, I loved the drawings, linking between each idea and its philosopher is interesting as well. The book teaches the kids to be patient and wise. It simplifies the big ideas into simple words that can be understood by young readers and also support this ideas with stories and examples (my favorite one was p.g 33: when someone is angry, maybe it’s not you who is responsible) These are the things I could highlight. Otherwise, this book address children ( maybe the age of 12 or 13 ) so as a whole it is kind of basic for adults. I recommend it for young readers." said.

" I wished I had owned a book like this when I was a kid. That being said, I am glad I got the chance to read it now. A must-have item for my future kids^^ " said.

" Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss. " said.

" Lovely book that I'm glad I got for my son. I wish I'd had it as a kid. " said.

" A very charismatic book that explains some of our most desirable questions about life and society in an organized and logical manner. I think it is definitely intended to be read by/to children but I highly believe that adults can easily benefit from that organized knowledge as well. " said.

" Though it's for kids and young readers, I know adults will be enjoying this book, too. The book talks about philosophy in a very simple, practical way. Reading this book allows me to reflect my own life, to stop for a moment and enjoy its simplicity. Also, it provides us with the ideas of the great minds, such as Socrates, Albert Camus, Ibn Sinna, and other philosophers in an enjoyable way. I gave it four stars (not five) because the book is too short and I'm craving for more big ideas! :p " said.

"This book is a little gem which kept me entertained as much as it would the target audience.
As a teacher something I'm always trying to encourage in students is to question, to query and to think about things ; this book is a ready made resource for this, with a variety of topics covered so the young person reading it is bound to find something to pique their interest. I used some of the questions as starting points for small discussions and essays with one of my classes.
The layout is very user friendly, the illustrations are wonderful and overall it is a very readable, accessible book.
