Why Sochu?

Every animal has a certain trait for survival. Birds have wings, fish have gills, tigers have claws. But what about us? What is our trait for survival?

You're right! It's the ability to THINK!


Join us in celebrating the process of thinking with Sochu and his friends.


For some reason (and we all know what it is!), most children's stories end with a clear message. The message is usually very judgemental and does not take into consideration the vagaries of life! At its simplest, the message usually is - if you do this, that will happen, so don't do this!

But learning does not come from holding a moral high-ground and telling children what to do. Innate in learning is a need to explore, adventure, and discover! That means that the end of anything is definitely unpredictable, and a mystery. While children's literature often creates a sense of mystery, the exploration and discovery is poorly absent.

Sochu's spirit interestingly moves away from the traditional approach. The storyline raises questions at many stages, and I just love the way it finishes - always a question for children to consider, without giving the usual 'just 1 message'; but creating many possibilities to consider - just like LIFE!

Children need entertainment that can open them up to newer perspectives, help them deal with varied pressures and be exposed to the many diversities​ in the society.

It would be nice if the comedy (in children’s shows) had some standard, and if violence was reduced considerably.

Both my son and I loved Sochu. The characters in the book are quite realistic - my son was able to relate to some of his friends while he read along which made it more interesting and fun.

    I had the opportunity to watch one story of Sochu of thinking outside the box, and I found the story telling and imagination extremely innovative but simple in explaining the concept which we would otherwise struggle with to explain to a pre-schooler. I'm looking forward to more stories to share with my daughter and taking her on this adventure!

    As a parent who always gives importance to having the right reading material for her child, I always felt that most of the books have age old stories and not something that the kids of the present can relate to. In my search for good books, when I stumbled upon Sochu, I was happily delighted. I not just enjoyed reading the books myself, the stories also guided me on how to be a better parent.

    My daughter truly enjoyed the superb design of the book and all the characters. The thoughtful stories actually helped her find meaning in why we go to school or why not to worry to much about what she would become when she grow up or the importance of playing outdoors. She also related her real life teachers to the teacher character in Sochu.

    I felt very happy to get to join Sochu on Zoom. I liked Sochu very much. There was a lot of comedy. Please inform me when there are other videos of Sochu available.

    After I read a Sochu book "When I Grow Up" to my three year old, she exclaimed, "Mummy, I want to be a bird when I grow up and fly high in the sky." One of the beauties of Sochu books is that they celebrate what makes us human - the ability to wonder and imagine.

    What I like more, however, is the way the books celebrate imperfections. Sochu's humans are so real and relatable - a child throws balls of crumpled paper, another dozes off in class, and yet another loves to read. The eccentricities of the characters are quite endearing too.

    I would recommend Sochu for that child in you whose journey of wonder and imagination is still alive. And if you think it is not alive, pick up one to read and see if it warms you up to think and explore.

    This book is perhaps the one of the most impressive children book I've read. I bought this for my niece and nephew but since I always like reading graphic books, I too read it - thinking it was a children book. But I was so wrong. This book is perhaps the one of the most impressive children book I've read. Mostly, children books are about violence, mindless entertainment but this book was all about imparting good value system to kids. For me, this book isn't just for kids. Everyone can take away something from this book. It inspires kids to raise questions, wonder about new things, and find profound solutions in the end. I will highly recommend this book to everyone. Every parent should themselves read this book first and then pass it to their children. I am now looking forward to more volumes of Sochu!!!

    Best book for children. It provokes you to think. Must buy.

  • Amazon Customer


    A great initiative, Sochu is a brilliant tool to help children get introduced to the joy of reading. I have a ten year old and a five year old, both of whom love books. But even then eight times out of ten they seem to be reaching for Sochu. Apart from the content, the presentation is wonderful given how interactive it is. The fact that it's bright and chirpy also helps. A thumbs up to Sochu and a huge shout out to the team that created it.

    A must read for kids of all age group (5 yrs to 90 yrs) looking forward for more stories.

    Intellectual topics with a high entertainment quotient. A brilliant book for kids and parents alike. Got it for my 7 yr old nephew and he's finished reading both the books in a couple of days time. Can't wait to order the next set!!

    Intriguing Books. Recently, I was on a vacation at my nieces' house and I took a copy of Sochu for them. They were immediately hooked onto it. So much so that they conducted dummy classroom sessions while assuming a character each from the book. They even made some drawings from the book. Overall, they were happy to drift away into the wave of Sochu and consume what I would call nutritious entertainment.

    Definitely recommend this over a lot of other children's books out there. Just got the set for my niece and she seems so engrossed and thrilled with both the books. Lovely colours too.
