Boom! We're off!
We are very excited to announce the launch of WONDER PONDER, a publisher specialising in 'Visual Philosophy for Children'.
On 20th November, 2014, coinciding with World Philosophy Day, WONDER PONDER is releasing its first title, Cruelty Bites in English and Mundo cruel in Spanish.
- Is it OK to kill ants? When? And how many?
- Would you like to live in a zoo? Why?
- Is it always cruel to make someone do something they don't want to do?
Cruelty Bites is the first in the Visual Philosophy for Children series by Wonder Ponder. Half-way between a book and a game, it comes in a box and invites readers aged eight and over (adults too!) to think about cruelty and our relationship with cruelty in way that is both serious and seriously fun.
CRUELTY BITES CONTENTS:
- 14 cards with scenes for wondering and pondering
- More than 100 carefully worded questions for curious minds
- 3 blank cards for desining your own scenes
- A philosophical companion guide for children and adults
- Ideas for wonderpondering
- Cruelty Bites poster
Wonder Ponder introduces readers aged eight and over to philosophy's big questions playfully and appealingly. Engaging scenes and intriguing questions prompt reflection and discussion encouraging children to develop their own thoughts and arguments and to build a visual and conceptual map of the issue addressed in each box.
Wonder Ponder boxes are designed to look at, read and think about by themselves or with others, in educational, play or family settings.
Other planned titles in Wonder Ponder's Visual Philosophy for Children Series include:
- I, Person (on personal identity and the difference between persons and robots)
- No Way! (on possibility and impossibility)
- Freedom in a Box (on freedom)
- The real thing (on reality, imagination and dreaming)
- What's It All For? (on happiness and the meaning of life)
Wonder Ponder boxes are available online at wonderponderonline.com and soon in points of sale across Spain and UK.
