Jens Peter de Pedro wrote this 11:14am Sep 2 on the Dust or Magic Facebook Group:

“Grown-ups desperately need to feel safe, and then they project onto the kids. But what none of us seem to realize is how smart kids are. They don’t like what we write for them, what we dish up for them, because it’s vapid, so they’ll go for the hard words, they’ll go for the hard concepts, they’ll go for the stuff where they can learn something. Not didactic things, but passionate things.” 
― Maurice Sendak

Humorous article of reasons people want to challenge some books

When you hear that, in the 1950s,  Tarzan was banned by a Los Angles public library because Tarzan and Jane were “living in sin”  the idea seems quaint.  After all, something that silly hasn’t happened in least half a century, right?  We should be so lucky.  You can consult this  interactive map to see what your state has recently banned, or read on for some silly samples of why books have have been banned or challenged.

1974 – An administrator in Wild Rose, Wisconsin, stated that Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee was “slanted” and declared that “if there’s a possibility that something might be controversial, then why not ban it? ”  Great attitude for an educator.

First removed from an Illinois school library in 1977 because of “nudity to no purpose” Maurice Sendak’s  In the Night Kitchen has faced challenges well into the 1990s and, in some schools, shorts were drawn on the nude cartoon boy.

1983 – 2010 It’s one thing if you personally don’t want to read the Diary of Anne Frank, but can you imagine wanting to ban it because it is a “real downer?”  No?  In 1983, the Alabama Textbook Committee thought that this was a good reason.  Since then the book has been the subject of continuous controversy across the nation.

1984 – An Eagle Point Oregon elementary school challenged the Three Billy Goats Gruff, claiming that the book was too violent for children.  Well they could be right, given all the goat-on-troll violence we see in the news.

Did Little Red Riding Hood need AA?  California school officials were not taking any chances, and, in 1990,  banned a version of the tale that showed “Red” taking grandma a bottle of wine in the basket of goodies. Perhaps that was what the wolf was after? A  year later, in  Clay County, Florida, a parent raised the same issue, and a Bradford county teacher complained that the wolf was too violent.

Shel Silverstein’s works have been the  source of many twisted knickers in both the 1980s and 1990s. In 1985, Light in the Attic was challenged by one Wisconsin school for “encouraging children to break dishes so that they wouldn’t have to dry them.”  Apparently banning felt good because  the next year another Wisconsin school system pulled Silverstein’s  Where the Sidewalk Ends  because it “suggests drug use, the occult, suicide, death, violence disrespect for true,..authority, [and] rebellion against parents.”  Even worse (or better if you are considering the comedic value) is that the book includes the poem “Dreadful,” which in turn contains the line “someone ate the baby.”  In 1993, a school district in Pennsylvania pulled the book lest the poem “encourage cannibalism.”  Yeah, good daycare, drug use, and cannibalism, the top concerns of the modern parent.

Of course this is that state where some officials were shocked to discover that artists paint pictures of nudes!  At least THEY got educated if not their students.

Another amusing complaint comes all the way from the U.K.  The London County Council in England banned the use of Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny from London schools. Why? The stories portrayed only “middle-class rabbits.”  I’ll leave it to you to decide how one determines the social class of rabbits.

For this Throwback Thursday, did you remember Seven Little Monsters from the PBS KIDS Bookworm Bunch from 2000 to 2002? It was about a family of seven monsters and their mother. The series was created by Maurice Sendak and based on his book. Each monster is named after a different number from 1 to 7, and each has unique physical characteristics. http://ow.ly/yHZ8l

I was asked to list 10 books that have stayed with me in some way. I'm not to take more than a few minutes and not think too hard. They do not have to be the "right" books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way.
What are your 10 books, or 5 books or 1 book?
