Ian Gilbert’s first book for Independent Thinking (and the only one he has ever written on a train) is a perennial favourite with children, teachers and parents and has been translated into several languages (including Hebrew and Arabic). Written for his son who still hasn’t read it, it follows Benny the Owlet (‘an owlet is a little owl, like a piglet is a little pig, and an outlet is a little out but not all the way’) as his father teaches him about learning, thinking and being himself. The perfect introduction to thinking skills, learning, wisdom and life in a tree. Following the seven lessons Benny the owlet receives from his wise old father, this book will show you how to think and think well. Ideal for teachers, parents and older children, this book is an excellent introduction to the concept of thinking skills and why they are so important.
