The issue of book banning should be discussed and confronted the year round, so here is a great post from the blog ReaderKidz discussing some reasons for why certain books are banned.
Challenge yourself to read one of the books in a public place. Emphasize the power of reading, education, and connections with others. Tell others about your favorite books and characters and why they’re important to you. If we pledge ourselves to share and encourage and promote, then we can combat those who would rather hide, condemn, and censor. Start by telling us, sharing a photo of you and your favorite banned book, and how it changed you.
