Sonda’s offer for children consists of realistic and exciting stories, usually set in specific social contexts, which can raise children’s awareness and inspire them to change the reality.
Edizioni Sonda promotes a special sensitivity towards animals and it encourages a special communication with them: it has developed Europe’s most extensive and consistent publishing project, which aims at affirming animal rights and promoting veganism and the vegan culture (with essays about animalism and vegan cookbooks).
Sonda publishes essays and handbooks on hot social topics, which often prove to be controversial and raise a lot of discussion: from gay families to the value of homework; from molester’s mentality to children’s rights; from companies’ environmental responsibilities to emotional education; from the importance to develop your own talent to the ecological strategies for a better world.
