Oh Wow. Banning books in my opinion is just not right. It limits the knowledge that children can gain from these books. A lot of books have important themes in them that need to be taught. Like Blubber- one of the most realistic books that I’ve ever read about the consequences of bullying in children. Alice in Wonderland is one of the best books I’ve ever read. Everything can be seen, the way that Alice grows too big or shrinks suddenly: It’s a commentary on being unfamiliar with her body as she grows-important for children to learn that they will feel that way as they mature. I agree, banning books is done by people with small brains. Anybody banning books is only looking at the surface level and not grasping the real meaning of a book.
