Socrates and his Dad
Philosophy for children
“A beautiful little book of wonder (…) The underlying feeling is similar to the one in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince. (…) Øverenget and Torseter have created a little treasure of wonder, a book that appeals to both children and adults.”

Socrates and his dad talk a lot. They talk about how grains of sand look on the inside and where the snowmen go during summer. They talk about gravity and how things and thoughts change when they look at them from different angles.
Einar Øverenget writes short, simple everday dialouges between little Socrates and his Daddy. Every story starts with a short text that introduces the philosophical topic that is discussed.
