May 18th is the publication date of the third title in the Wonder Ponder Visual Philosophy for Children series, Whatever You Want, an invitation to wonder and ponder about freedom for small, medium and large people.
Half-way between a book and a game, Whatever You Want comes in a box and invites readers to think about freedom in a way that is both serious and seriously fun.
Through the questions prompted by the scenes in the box, the reader-player can go building their own definition of freedom.
Part of our critically acclaimed Wonder Ponder, Visual Philosophy for Children series, Whatever You Want is designed for children to look at, read and think playfully about by themselves, accompanied by an adult or in a group, in educational, play or family contexts.
