What is Philo and Sophie?

Philo and Sophie is a philosophy and ethics curriculum that is being developed for kindergarten through third grade.  Done in a Sesame Street-style, it follows Philo (a penguin), Sophie (a mermaid), and their friends as they learn about happiness, success, truth, and love.  Along the way they learn about the intrinsic dignity of all persons, and the happiness that comes from caring for others and being loved by God.

If you’re child attended St. Mark’s, Emerald Heights Academy, Holy Rosary in West Seattle, St. Rose of Lima, or Holy Rosary in Edmonds last year they likely got to see a sneak peak of Philo and Sophie.
