    Aside from endorsing Colonialism, Jean de Brunhoff makes light of death by killing off Babar s mother on page two, quickly moving on and completely ignoring it I m sorry, but for a child s mother to die, that s a pretty big deal, and two pages later, that child shouldn t be totally over it and having fun riding an elevator and buying new shoes He should be morning, or trying to learn how to deal with loss.All of this could maybe be overlooked if The Story of Babar had a positive message, but t Aside from endorsing Colonialism, Jean de Brunhoff makes light of death by killing off Babar s mother on page two, quickly moving on and completely ignoring it I m sorry, but for a child s mothe...

    I m not planning to add children s books to my page, but this one really took my breath away as I read it to my one year old one night.First of all, Babar s mother is shot on like page two There she is lying dead with the gloating hunter holding his rifle Yikes Little orphan Babar meekly watches on, barely a tear in his elephant eye.However, this isn t enough to warrant a review It s what comes next Babar s story then unfolds as some bizarre French colonial wish fulfillment Babar, followin I m not planning to add children s books to my page, but this one really took my breath away as I read it to my one year old one night.First of all, Babar s mother is shot on like page two There she is ly...

    Odd little childrens book A minor quibble, elephants live in a matriarchy, so not only is this not educational its actively uneducational P I m sure there must be some other versions of this book but the one i read had hand written text , and in cursive Even i had issues deciphering a word here or there but i can only imagine the horror on a child s face if they were handed this lol And their growing horror if they actually managed to figure out what it says There are several dark mo Odd little childrens book A minor quibble, elephants l...

    I remember being in love with Babar as a child, but I m thinking they must have been the updated stories Not only did my preschooler not really enjoy this lengthy tale, I was almost too embarrassed to keep reading I knew going in that it was a colonial allegory, but geez I mean we see his mom shot and killed and Babar is sad, but he s ok by the next day because a rich old lady wants to buy him some clothes Then he goes out to civilize his former herd who of course want to make him king beca I remember being in love with Babar as a child, but I m thinking they must have been the updated stories Not only did my preschooler not really enjoy this lengthy tale, I was almost too embarrassed to keep reading I knew going in that it was a colonial allegory, bu...

    This book was confusing to me.Babar has his mother killed in front of him I thought this would turn out into a similar story to Bambi, but I was wrong.Oh so wrong Suddenly, Babar leaves the jungle and assimilates with the humans he doesn t hate them for what happened to his mother or scared of them.His cousins join him later and later they all return to the jungle beause the cousin s family was looking for them Afterward Babar...

    I just thought I d save you the trouble of reading this stupid kid s book by writing everything that happens.There s an elephant named Babar who has a pretty good life and is being raised by a great mom Then she s murdered by hunters right in from of him He runs away to the city where an old woman takes him in Honestly, I think they re a bitthan friends if you catch my drift Years pass before two random elephants come running to the city too And who do they find Babar and his old lad I just thought I d save you the trouble of reading this stupi...
