Meeting the Ignos
Susan T. Gardner
Let Immanuel, the fox, and his “Igno” friends take you on an ignoble adventure. With a detailed parent/teacher guide and philosophical dictionary, adults can use this book to reason together with youngsters about how best to discover ways to overcome “igno” obstacles to good thinking and view such encounters as opportunities for learning and growth.
The ultimate goal of this book is to facilitate “reasoned dialogue” between children, and between children and adults, so that all who engage in this “ignoble adventure” will come to embrace “reasoning with others” as the best possible process whereby we can all become the best that we can be.
