This children s story was a real mixed bag in my opinion On one hand it did an excellent job in dealing with friendship grief neighborly concern God and faith Moreover it encouraged writing as a method of dealing with sad feelings On the other hand it had too much of what would be considered gross boy stuff and the character of Dibs was ike a caricature in the beginning of the story Those two things are minor though compared to what I thought was the are minor though compared to what I thought was the problem of the book

is encouraging to believe in conspiracy theories Author Melissa Savage takes conspiracy ideas that have been around for decades about the Roswell New Mexico UFO incident in the 1940s which all have been debunked and makes them seem Manual do guerreiro da luz legitimate in this book Ateast one person involved in the real Roswell incident is a character in this story too Now years ago I Creative Alcohol Inks likely would have hadittle problem with a children s story of this nature but not today Critical thinking is obviously not being taught in many schools any Fallin For His Thug Passion 2 longer and many adults are also obviouslyacking in the ability to think critically I m not talking about critical thinking as defined by scientist but critical thinking that involves ceasing to believe things when there is a Carrot City lot of evidence that what is being believed is not true That pertains to both things and people So many individuals in current times appear to believe that whatever they want to believe is the truth Children areearning from this too Believe whatever you want and disregard any facts that contradict your beliefs In this book the military is seen as evil and desperate to cover up the fact that aliens have See What You Made Me Do landed on the Earth One high ranking soldier even threatens children getting right in their faces Ateast one child is manhandled The two retired military officers in the story are seen as good and kind and had to Java 8 in Action leave the military because they were good and kind Childrenie to protect an alien and are encouraged to do so by adults Since uite a few characters have Mexican surnames it s hard not to wonder if this story is also actually an illegal alien one incognito Decades ago such a view of the military might have been accepted without uestion by many Today however it s the military that seems to be the trying to prevent abuse of power in this country It s the military that seems rational For example the military has had Weaving a Family Untangling Race and Adoption little interest in having a parade showing off their hot stuff a parade that the President of the United States wants A president who constantly abuses poweries and believes in conspiracy theories It was a retired Navy admiral who recently condemned the president for acting ike a dictator and for embarrassing us in the eyes of our children In addition it s interesting to note that while the military and military officers in this story are bad the Catholic church and the ocal priest are good Abuse of children by Catholic priests in the 1940s has been documented That s not to suggest that all priest past and present should be suspect or that the Catholic church is bad but it s interesting to note where Melissa Savage is coming from Her author description states that she Principles of Agricultural Engineering Volume-1 (Farm Power, farm Machinery, Farm Buildings, Post Harvest-Technology) loves toearn and write about the mystery of cryptozoology for children Okay but is encouraging children to decide for yourself about a possible UFO crash in Roswell as she does on her website and writing a children book obviously supportive of Roswell conspiracy theories the same as encouraging children to wonder if the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot are real creatures somewhere out there I would say it s not the same Nessie and Bigfoot are imagined to be earthly creatures that possibly mankind does not know about Roswell was a real incident in the 1940s involving a nuclear test surveillance balloon and also involving aliens and conspiracy theories that have been debunked Children are thus being encouraged to disregard any and all debunking and to think whatever they want about the matter They are being encouraged to believe people who make up things people who The Special Undercover Delivery (The Little Ad (The Little Ad(option) Agency Book 1) lie The only adults I have ever met who intensely believe in aliens are those who are alienated from the human race The only adults I know who constantlyie are The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure--Without Losing Your Soul living aie of one sort or another They do not want to deal with their ad.
