Banned Children's Books - Would you ban these picture books? Who banned Sylvester and the Magic Pebble!!!!!!

  • Angela Tremback

    I loved all of these books growing up!

I like that I have the option of "bumper stickers" here because I don't really like stuff on my car.

CafePress has the best selection of custom t-shirts, personalized gifts, posters , art, mugs, and much more.

Breaks my heart that this still happens. Oh, and let's all welcome the Hunger Games to the list. Because we can't have people thinking their government would EVER deceive them. Now resume your consumption of goods and services.

    These are some of my faves! I guess I will be a rebel. My son can read whatever he wants... Once he learns how to...

    I know!! Waldo?! C'mon. And sane Sarah. My 16 yr old read catcher I. The rye and Slaughterhouse just this year.

  • Jennifer Cook Hughes

    People are overstimulated ~ I think we should ban more books . . and remove color chalk from the classrooms. Waldo is a subversive psychopath . . .lurking in the chaos. (I kid of course. Don't ban books.)

  • Jeff Smith

    Ha! I'm sure we all knew you were kidding. Great caption. These are my fave books too. I friggin' love reading banned books! Take that oppressive government!! *shakes fist
