Kids have their own special brand of philosophy – I’ve found it darts from incredibly profound and insightful to breathtakingly simple in an instant.
Described as a ‘conceptual activity book’, The Onion’s Great Escape provides philosophical questions and imagination stretching exercises for kids. Combined with Fanelli’s trademark style, collage and extremely clever paper engineering, the book asks young readers to help the onion ‘break free’. The end result is a fabulous stand alone, three-dimensional onion. Check out the video clip below to see what I mean.
The questions range from the simple, such as ‘who are you?’ to the mind-bending, such as ‘is something less real because we cannot touch it?’ and ‘do cherries taste the same for everyone?. Fun stuff – you may want to record your kid’s answers!
