Banned Book Week

Another year has come . .¬† another banned book week. Each year the list gets bigger and bigger. It’s sad really sad that after all this “freedom” we have in this country books are being banned for some really ridiculously things. Honest instead of asking the school or state to ban a book ask for an alternative for your student to read. It is that simple.
