You Get What You Get

At least the author can't complain about my review. She gets what she gets.

So, yeah. Magical solution to an actual real problem. That I really have. I'm pretty sure if I told my child, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit," (he's almost three) he would throw a fit. And it's about as condescending as "Because I said so." Who gets to decide "what you get"?

Television is bad. Because it is.

Quick review.

Review: 

What. A rabbit is in a bad mood. Pretty realistic, if metaphorical, depiction of what it is like. Then deus ex machina birthday surprise party.

An American ABC

Subheader: 

Quick review.

Review: 

What. It's kind of long, but also quaint and a bit racist. And it was published in 1952, before the Pledge of Allegiance changed. Interesting in some ways.

The Little Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings

September 22, 2016
Subheader: 

Quick review.

Review: 

This book sends the wrong message to impressionable children. Basically, when the Little Rabbit gets the titular red wings, his mother and all the other animals reject him as a stranger and he is forced to undo his wish in order to fit in again. It teaches kids that being different is bad. My video review goes into more detail.

Subheader: 

Quick review.

Review: 

What did I just read? First he's kidnapped from Africa by his "friend", the man in the yellow hat, then he falls overboard in a boat, then he calls the fire department by accident and is THROWN IN JAIL, then he walks on powerlines to escape and flies with some balloons.
