Read full description of the books:
Shades of Aesop done badly. Some of the lessons I don't think were valid lessons at all. But they weren't all that bad and I was willing to go along with this book up until "The Pelican and the Crane."
Call me triggered, as I probably am. As a parent of autistic children I had a hard time with this Fable. I understand the sentiment - you don't have friends because you don't act right. Fine. But with an autistic child who doesn't understand how their behavior impacts others - this kind of lesson seems harsh in a very "you get what you deserve" sort of way. And I have to wonder if it teaches children to react to this kind of behavior in that way.
Perhaps the better lesson would have been a teaching moment, where someone with compassion can work with the offender to understand that they did something not acceptable. Or to perhaps leave judgment of others to some higher authority. I don't know. I certainly didn't like this 'lesson' and while I understand that this isn't the most recent book, compassion is something that's been around for centuries.
This book just didn't work for me.
