Product description

"How do you do it, Dad?" asked Benny, the owlet. (For those of you who don't know, an owlet is a little owl, like a piglet is a little pig, and outlet is a little out but not all the way.) "Do what?" said Big Owl, Benny the Owlet's Dad, who, being grown-up, didn't need letters after his name. "Be so wise and all knowing?" "Well," replied the wise, middle-aged owl, "I think it's just an owl thing. To be honest I am not really sure how I got to be omniscient." "Will I be wise like you when I'm all grown-up?" asked Benny who was too small to appreciate semantic irony. "Well," said Big Owl, "that depends on how you think." "Think about what?" asked Benny. "No, Just think," came the reply. This brilliant little book continues in this entertaining style to describe the seven lessons Benny receives from his wise old father, keen to teach his son how to think and think well. Ideal for teachers, parents and older children, this book is an excellent method of introducing the concept of thinking skills and why they are so important.
