This week’s question:

What books do you wish you had on your high school book list?

Black Beauty

I really wish Black Beauty was required reading for primary-school aged kids. They’re at that developmental time where if they step into a horse’s head and see cruelty from the point of view of the animal, they’ll more likely learn to emphasise and not perform cruel acts on animals. And we all know bullies start with animals and move on to other weaker children. Teach children to be empathetic to those less powerful and we’re one step closer to stamping out bullying.
