I would recommend Big Ideas for Curious Minds: An Introduction to Philosophy
I would read one of the sections to my 7 year old daughter before bed and we would talk about it. She loved it.
This is geared for kids, but the questions are something we as adults think about all the time.
I have some other books on critical and logical thinking for kids, but they are geared towards the 12 year old age. I could not quite get her into them.
My current approach has been to teach her how to think about problems using a set of lessons I created in Scratch. I essentially start her with a plan of what we want to do. Then I use a series of questions while we are building the project. The platform gives you a fast visual feedback so it is perfect. 8 years of age is probably the youngest age a kid can be to do this without adult supervision. This has been my experience teaching this to several elementary school classes grades 1-5
