Frank and funny . . . Takes young children, skipping and whooping, out from under the gooseberry bush Independent Ranked number 2 in the 1990-1999 most challenged books in the USA for its portrayal of a gay couple one of whom is the father of the boy they look after, the book featured in the 2008 US Presidential Election when it was revealed Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin had tried to get the book removed from a local library. This picture book is based on the real-life experience of Jazz Jennings, who is now a teenager. Jazz knows she is a girl who loves pink and dressing up like a mermaid, even though her family is a little confused until they visit a doctor. From there, the book explains what it means to be transgender with simple language and appealing illustrations. Unfortunately, it’s pretty easy to guess why this book has been challenged by parents in some areas—but in response, there have also been supportive readings of the book organized across the U.S. The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963 by Christopher Paul CurtisAlice was banned in the province of Hunan, China (1931) for the portraying animals acting on the same level as humans.

The book has been banned as 'satanic' in some areas and was even burned by members of a church in New Mexico in 2001. The controversy is ironic, though, as Tolkien was a devout Christian and many scholars note Christian themes in his work. Nothing to get worked up about, though you know they will. All it's going to take is the wrong kid pulling Willy off the shelf, asking his mom if he can take it home, and the manure will hit the fan.Willy was just your average nut sac sperm and he swims and swims and swims to practice for the big day. urn:lcp:wherewillywent00alla:epub:409b4572-d5e3-474d-906c-4c91663e58f9 Extramarc University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (PZ) Foldoutcount 0 Identifier wherewillywent00alla Identifier-ark ark:/13960/t7gq9h86d Invoice 11 Isbn 9780375930300

Hilariously funny, warm, and endearing, this is a picture book that appeals on different levels to both children and grown-ups.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain
As an adult, I liked this book. I felt it was a new and interesting way to convey the same old "birds and bees" information. However, as a parent, I do agree with the banning of this book in public school libraries. I feel this book is too graphic for any and every child to be able to pull off the shelf. I think this book would be much more appropriate if used with parental consent and while I do not feel that this book provides incorrect information, I think that it should be the parents choice as to when and how their children come across this type of information. The race, and "the nasty," are accomplished under a yellow blanket, so there's really none of that "when a mommy and daddy love one another, the daddy puts his penis . . ." stuff. We see an interior of Willy burrowing into the egg which then divides and grows into a familiar shape. And, voila! A babe is born to happy, happy parents. This week is Banned Books Week, the week we celebrate having the freedom to read whatever we want. Did you know that even children’s books are challenged sometimes? It’s true. You might wonder why anyone would try to ban a picture book or a young adult novel. It turns out that there are a whole lot of reasons, including parents’ desires to protect their children from things like magic (the Harry Potter series), scientifically accurate sexual education ( Where Willy Went), and even depictions of people at the beach ( Where’s Waldo?).
