Namby jahamby indoctrination of kids

Engaging story but seems an attempt to slyly indoctrinate kids about an overly mature topic.

Great Australian writer

My 5 year old daughter has been listening to the first book of Little Fur for over a year, so it was time we got the second one. It is such a delight to listen to Isobelle Carmody reading her own book (and being Australian, it's great to hear Australian readers as well as US and UK accents). A great story that because of it's length we can listen to again and again to get more out of it each time. I'm sure my daughter only picks up a little each time (depending on what else she's doing at the time), but she plays and listens and eventually knows the story.
