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 a playful and careful way.
Wonder Ponder introduces readers to philosophy's big questions in a way that is fun and appealing. 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.
