Radical Books for Feminist Kids-Lord of the Animals

December 20, 2010

A Native American creation myth, this story has some of the most beautiful simple illustrations. It is the story of how humans became the “Lord of the Animals” a story that while it is a myth, has much truth to it as well. This book could be a great opportunity to teach love and compassion for all creatures. Humans have so much control, we are as this book states, Lord of the Animals. We have the responsibility to not only use that position wisely, but to teach others to do the same. This spectacular picture book by Fiona French is a chance to not only teach just that, but expose the young ones to beautiful art and folklore.
