Rhino girls often get confused by Ms. Alcott’s books, because We are raised for rough-and-tumble encounters with Life. Apparently, this was not the case for Ms. Alcott’s audience. The Readership probably sees what adjustments Ms. Alcott was suggesting, the get-up-and-go approach.
In the Wild, gender plays a lesser day-to-day part; it’s every critter for him or herself, take it or leave it.
On that gender thing, please recall that every wild Rhino is raised by Mom. No exceptions.
Also, happy 184th birthday, Ms. Alcott.
