Philosophy for Children Enquiry Based on 'Sweep'

The picture book 'Sweep' centres around Ed, a boy trying to deal with overwhelming emotions.  In particular, a bad mood.  But what is a bad mood? What is it to children?  These questions ran through my mind as I was reading it and I knew then that this book provides the perfect stimulus for philosophy for children.  The P4C plan below is aimed at Reception aged children.  For more exclusive book inspired learning resources, sign up below for our bookish bulletin.
