This book is TERRIBLE. This book teaches kids that adults/bosses/land-owners/the guys in charge (via Farmers) are terrible, lazy and abusive and glorifies the idea that an uprising by the little people/common folk (the abused, over-worked non-land-owners) is good and necessary and would bring fairness to the world. All joking aside, this gorgeously illustrated children's book is a perfect, snuggly fit for the socialist/communist propaganda tag. Here's what it teaches: Kick the bad, lazy, land-owning farmer out the door and take over his farm for the benefit of the workers (a la workers of the world unite!). Unbelievably, this stuff is out there, people, and here is your perfect example. Tangentially, has anyone out there ever met a lazy farmer? I guess there's got to be one out there, but I know a lot of farmers and I've never met him. Nevertheless, THIS is what the authors' imaginations were driven to come up with for the benefit of our children? I WILL read this book to my daughter someday ... i.e. when she's old enough to understand that ill-formed, incorrect messages can be propagated to children through cute stories and beautiful illustrations. The folks who think this book is brilliant are either simply not paying attention to what their kids are learning, or are, at least according to my principles, 100% politically wrong-minded.
