What is Humanism? How Do You Live Without a God? and Other Big Questions for Kids

by Michael Rosen and Annemarie Young - £8.99  Hachette Children's Group (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780750288422 | ISBN 10: 0750288426

All about humanism and what it means to be a humanist, living without believing in a god.
 
What does it mean to be a humanist? Is humanism a new idea? How do people live their lives without religious beliefs? The first of its kind aimed at the new curriculum for upper primary and lower secondary school children, this book will examine how humanists respond to fundamental questions about morals and ethics, the origins of life, religion and the state. It will look at how humanists mark the milestones of birth, marriage and death. How do people without belief in God live moral and fulfilled lives, with respect for humankind and the universe? A thought-provoking approach will encourage readers to think about the big questions for themselves.
 
The book will include contributions from a number of prominent humanists, such as Stephen Fry, Camila Batmanghelidjh, Philip Pullman, Jim Al-Khalili, Natalie Haynes and Shappi Khorsandi, who will explain their own philosophy and tell us what is important to them.
