Boycott the Circus!
Circuses are cruel. Those animals are on the road constantly, living in tiny cages, and whipped into submission. It sends a terrible message to our children. Elephants and tigers are in peril worldwide and we should be teaching our children to respect these animals, rather than sending them a message that it is OK to "train" these animals to do silly tricks. And animal-free circuses are so much entertaining and higher-minded anyway!
