'THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES' : A LESSON FOR THE 21st CENTURY
A review of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale and the history behind it. Also an analysis of the moral lessons it still holds for all of us in the 21st century. In my opinion, this is not just a fairy tale - it's the greatest of all fairy tales, and a parable of powerful insight into human failings.
IS SUPERMAN A HERO? ... IS BATMAN A SUPERHERO?
A seriously light-hearted investigation of these comic book stars. But just what does true heroism entail? A silly review with a sensible message.
THE LITTLE BOOK OF THUNKS (Part 1) : 'PHILOSOPHY FOR CHILDREN AND EVERYONE ELSE'
Part 1 of my review of this small book which poses questions which are incredibly simple to ask, but deceptively difficult to answer! Philosophy designed to get young children thinking, but very suitable for adults too!
THE LITTLE BOOK OF THUNKS (Part 2) : 'QUESTIONS WHICH RAISE MORE QUESTIONS IN THE MIND OF A CHILD'
Part 2 of my review of 'A Little Book of Thunks'. In this part, I look in greater depth at questions which broaden the mind. An approach to education which is challenging, yet fun!
