What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

An exciting board book series that asks deep questions in a wonderfully accessible way.

Even little children have big questions about life. Imaginations are unique to every human on earth and René Descartes believed that is what makes every person their own true self. By thinking about what we imagine and how all people imagine differently, kids can work on understanding others’ perspectives and points of view and become more empathetic. Imagination with René Descartes will help them see how using your imagination makes you “you” and understanding the same about friends and family is an important part of getting along in a community.
