To me, the flip book shows a tale of struggle, despair, man's innate cruelty, and universal longings. But do we want our children learning these concepts in an arts & crafts class at the library? Should they be exposed to life's harsh realities with the help of cynical, gritty projects such as these? Or do we shelter them under a haze of innocent macaroni art until they are ready to be out in the world on their own?
I cannot answer these questions. You must decide for yourselves.
