THE BAT AND THE MULE
I would like to introduce you to a bat named Ralph and a Mule named Jerry! Even though they are traveling the same path, these two animals have completely opposite viewpoints of the world around them. When they refuse to see the other’s perspective, it creates a physical divide between them that threatens to destroy any chance they have at a lasting friendship. Will they overcome their differences and learn how to get along, or will their pride win the day?
The Bat and the Mule encourages children to respect the opinions of others, to understand the extent to which our words have consequences, and to see the dangers of being “blind as a bat” and “stubborn as a mule.”
