So these made me stop and take notice. Look at those cute, smiling animals on kabobs. There's something about the fact that they are threaded on sticks that makes them a little more graphic than your average Peeps. It seems like kind of a mixed message. Amaya and her friends discuss the ethics of eating meat on a regular basis. For the record, they all eat meat, some more than others, but they are having the conversation. I think that a good thing. Even in the third grade, it's important to make informed decisions. Still, I can only imagine the kind of reaction I'd get if I pulled these babies out at Easter. Half the kids would gleefully devour them and the other half would squeal and run in the other direction. How do you feel about animal kabobs?
