The Little Book of Thunks follows on the success of Ian Gilbert's bestseller, Little Owl s Book of Thinking. What is a "Thunk?" A "Thunk" is a beguiling question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks but that helps you start to think. The "thunks" in this book cover a broad range of topics including truth, justice, reality, beliefs, the natural world, the human condition, art, beauty, existence, difference between right and wrong, good and bad, life and death, war, religion, love, friendship and a whole lot more. Some examples of "thunks" are:

If I borrow a million dollars am I a millionaire?

Could a fly cause a plane to crash?

Are you man-made or natural?

Do dogs believe in God?

When you comb your hair is it art?

Not only are "thunks" a fun way to develop thinking skills, but they also hit all the right buttons to encourage children to generate imaginative ideas to stimulate thinking; look at and think about things differently and from other points of view; and ask why, how, what if, or other unusual questions.

Remember, because there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, they are a great resource for teachers to use in the classroom. in a miriad of situations or for conversation starters.
