Q: Maybe it's crazy to wonder if this exists, but I'm wondering if there are any children's books that cover the ideas and theories of learning? I'm not thinking of terminology heavy text books or anything, but maybe something more along the line of historical fiction...just something that might give a background to some developmental psychologists in their historic contexts, and super super basic presentations of their ideas? I know Thorndike, Skinner, and Piaget aren't the Three Little Pigs, but there are a lot of easy-reader biographies on other important figures (presidents, artists, explorers, etc) - any on psychologists? I'm not finding anything. Is the subject matter just too heavy?

Editor: Hmmmnnn...I have no idea. Perhaps Susan has revealed an untapped publishing niche. Readers, have you come across anything like she's described?
