Read a Challenged Children’s Book

 Banned Books Week is September 24-Oct 1, and I invite you to enjoy one of the many popular books that have been challenged by adults as inappropriate for young readers.  Here are some of my favorites:

And Tango Makes Three, Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, The Hunger Games, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things

Why the fuss?  Adults found them to be too sexually explicit, or containing offensive language, some were challenged because of homosexuality, or “anti-family” views.  Now that you have that information, I bet you REALLY want to read one!
