Could anyone give me examples of picture books that have a theme of co-existing in them?

Can you be more specific, Virginia? For example, are you referring to animals or people? Certain situations?

I think lots of animal pair books are really about how to navigate a relationship you can co-exist.

I'm referring to an idea I have about an invasive insect and a farmer where each has their own territory  so they can co-exist.

Would it be better with a native species that is annoying to deal with, but belongs there as much, if not more, than the farmer?  I say that because people are often even encouraged to kill invasive species on sight.  The goal isn't really tolerance when dealing with Asian giant hornets (Murder Honets), for example.

Invasive species are a huge problem in terms of habitat and species loss. Kudzu, certain mollusks, longhorn beetles. These species wreak havoc. Invasion was not a term chosen lightly.  The issue is there is no way to keep such a species in a territory. The idea is interesting, but not environmentally sound.
