Just read Babar to my children. in it the doctor tells Celeste that the babies aren't growing fast enough and need supplementing with cows' milk.

Felt very sad at that.
In addition it is terrifyingly violent.The older brother pushes the pram down a hill and the new babies fall out. Also a crocodile nearly eats one of them.

Ridiculous some of the things they put in books. Why would children need to know that?

why would that even need to be part of a story.

and after all, everyone knows that elephant milk is best for elephant babies wink

Isn't Babar very old though? You need to put it in some historical perspective...
