"Overall, this book made me reflect upon, yet again, the purpose of education and its aim to be a humanising endeavour. The book raises questions about the role and expectations of teachers and implies that P4C can give answers... It has reminded me that it is the relationships and interactions between teacher and learner that is the key part of the educative process."- Kate Duffy, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Education, University of Sunderland, Other Education - The Journal of Educational Alternatives, Volume 3 (2014), Issue 2 * pp. 98-101

"[Picturebooks, Pedagogy and Philosophy] provides no easy answers for the uses of picture books but instead is a comprehensive examination of how picture books contribute to our understanding of pedagogy and philosophy. This book demands a close reading as the authors have extracted a rich vein of knowledge from their wide and diverse reading, and integrates their experience and wisdom as illustrated by the well-woven fabric of critique and examples that are at the heart of this work." -ANALYTIC TEACHING AND PHILOSOPHICAL PRAXIS
