My 18 month old daughter loves the bubble guppies, a tv show. Its not like she watches much tv but every once in a while I need 5 minutes to myself :) Anyway, I picked up a book with the characters from the show and she LOVES it, wants me to read it a million times a day.
But... here's the issue I have. Its about 'adopting' a dog. I get that its not about people but they say "These puppies are up for adoption. That means we're looking for people to take them home and give them nice places to live" and then later the adult tells the kids "adopting a pet is a great thing to do". As someone who works in animal rescue I was really glad to see the message of rescue vs buy for kids, but I can't help but feel a little uncomfortable about the message of adoption in the book.
I am worried my kids will connect the puppy adoption message with their own adoption. What do other adoptiive parents do when they come across things like this? Scrap the book? Keep it anyway? Am I being overly sensitive here? Thanks!
