This book points out some of the good, but mostly bad in children's film. It points out things that I never noticed before; like how an infatuation with animals can be a distraction to the suffering of people, and that if there is a progressive message, it is very much downplayed. Instead of accusing the film-makers of purposely trying to promote political views, the author claims that "they were simply careless, not bothering to worry that they might be conveying such ideas...The company was so focused on its own white, male, middle-class perspective."
