When I was growing up, childrens’ books were often about a farm, complete with cartoon pictures of a cow with a big udder and a chicken sitting on a nest.
Maybe the books didn’t show the calf that the cow gave birth to in order to start lactating, and maybe they didn’t show the farmer collecting eggs out of the hen’s nest for breakfast or sale, but at least the general idea of family farming was there.
I guess Disney and the various comics companies and software have taken over kiddie lit, and they don’t show anything about where food comes from.
You know, my dad used to complain about kids books, cartoons, and movies anthropomorphizing animals. At the time I just rolled my eyes, as I didn't see the harm.
NOW we are seeing the harm, LOL!
