Latest Review: "Break up with Defeat" by Jermaine Francis

Looking at the May Book of the Month, Farmer Beau's Farm, in a broader perspective: Sammy is a kitten, while Kailey is a bunny. The fact that they relate to each other like two loving siblings is a lesson for humans to learn to relate harmoniously with each other, regardless of race, religion, politics or beliefs. This will make for a peaceful world. But why is it that even brothers cannot see eye to eye, like North against the South, etcetera?

i think if we take time to read books like this we will dwell more in love and unity with oneanother.but that is if we take the reading seriously.

I read somewhere that those who are readers tend to more emphatic and accepting than those who do not. Now, I don't know the actual percentages, but it's definitely an interesting thought.

I think a lot of people not able to get along is due to the fact of how different we are and how differently we are raised. Kailey Kitten was raised, what seems like a safe and loving environment, therefore, she was more accepting toward Sammy Bunny. Sammy, longed for a friend and probably have seen a variety of animals on his way to the farm. Therefore, accepting Kailey as a friend seemed almost natural.

Overall, I think a lot of why some are not able to see eye-to-eye is because of the way we grow up and the environment we live in, which makes us more or less accepting.

Yep, I agree with you. Everyone has different personalities and perspectives. This depends on many factors like how were you raised, your nature, what have you been through, your habits, etc. and accepting people with all these differences is what it means to be human. But sadly, a very small number of people believe in this.
And probably this can be one of the reasons why some are not able to see eye-to-eye.

Perhaps that's why these topics are popular in children's books? Perhapswe adults have a longing to see our kids make better choices than we have and be more empathetic, understanding, loving, and accepting than we were?
