DChance Review Honey Honey Lion by Jan Barett

Updated on September 21, 2013

Children's Book

The book seems to be about some place in Africa. A badger is fallowing a bird.

There is also some other creature in the background.

I assume the badger and the bird are looking for something. They might even be friends.

The bird in this book exists in real life, too to lead other animals to food. Once the animal finds the food they eat it but leave behind the part that the bird likes to eat.

I will be adding more about this book at the end of the article.

A badger decides to fallow a bird to some food. The bird wants the badger to share. The badger decides not to share.

In protest, the bird decides to get revenge on the badger. It happens that there is a food that the badger happens to like but can not get himself.

Honey. The badger wants honey. The bird can guide him to it.

The bird leads the badger to a lion instead of the honey.

About Revenge

Even though, this book is not very good to teach young people. It is part of what people may do.

Animals exist to find food. Revenge is not high up on the list so this story is pure fiction.

We as humans want revenge. The evil due needs to be punished or so we think. Revenge takes not only planing but hours off of our day. We could be doing something else.

The bird in that story could be leading another animal to food. The bird would get to eat, later. The bird would instead learn a lesson to not trust that one animal.

As you can see, the trust for that one animal is clearly broken. The badger in the story might never be lead around by birds to find food ever, again. Part of his food finding skills will be lost if he continues to trick the birds that also want food.

We want revenge because we consider the law will prove no good outcome in the matter at the time. I say, "At the time." Many want something done about a problem that is not being fixed. We take justice into our own hands when we feel frightened.

Fear creates a seed for revenge. It can stim from something that happened early on in our youth.

Consider this:

Your parents wanted you to keep the grass cut. If you did not cut the grass your allowance would not be given to you.

Years later:

You neighbor has a lawn that is over run by weeds. From what you learned as a kid your lawn should be cut a certain way. You get angry and instead of calling the police because their lawn is unkempt ... you though more seeds on their lawn to make things grown in their yard.

That will teach them, you think.

Soon, more weeds are growing in their yard. They are having a tough time keeping them back. They have to call someone to help them with cutting their own back yard.

You feel better because they seem to learn their lesson but now the seeds have taken rut in their yard. They have no idea how many seeds where in their yard. They notice that their yard is growing much more quickly. They now have to kill most of their grass to get read of all the weeds.

There lawn now has spots on it. They have to buy some more grass and soil so that their lawn will grow, again.

Getting revenge created a large problem when all you had to do was call the police about them not cutting their lawn.

2 Stars

I don't think that it is good to get revenge. This is a bad lesson to teach kids.

I like the art. However, the story is not politically correct enough for children. Also, this book is too real for children.

So, although the story is alright for the sake of the audience I will give this one two stars.

Good Try!

Give to others before they hurt you.


Practice sharing with others.

Try to give everyone an equal share of the food you serve.


What would you do if someone took your food?

Is revenge the answer to your problems?
