Gotta love those banned books!

It's Banned Books Week! The American Library Association (ALA) is a good place to start if you're interested in finding out titles of some of the books that have been banned over the years.

Alice Pope has posted some good links on the CWIM Blog as well. I looked at Amazon's list of banned books for children and discovered I've read more of them than not. I love it! My all-time favorite Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax, is on the list, as well as other favorites. Where would I be without the Narnia books or the Little House on the Prairie series?

Do you have a favorite banned book on the list?

Sylvester and the Magic Pebble?

Really?!? I loved that as a kid. And don't get me started about The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Oh, same as you Michelle. Little House and Narnia. But also Steinbeck and Flowers for Algernon and honestly most of the books on that list are childhood memories! Good post.

Sarah, Sylvester's been on that list for ages. I remember my stepmom, who was a librarian, telling me that when I was in high school. And Jennifer, I love Flowers for Algernon and Steinbeck too.
