Anyway, the story is that patrons asked the Toronto Public Library to remove copies of 'Hop on Pop' by Dr Seuss from it's collection because it supposedly promotes violence towards dads. Thankfully the Materials Review Committee opted to retain the book in their children's collection as it is a well loved classic.
The other six books on the list that came before the Materials Review Committee in 2013 were:
- Killing Kennedy: The End Of Camelot
- A Kiss Remembered
- Complete Hindi
- Flesh House
- That's My Boy
- Lizzy's Lion
Seven is actually not a terribly high number all considered, I mean I can come up with more than seven things I am iffy about my kids coming in contact with. I just think that these things that these things should be up a child's parents not society. My mom let me read all sorts of things people told her she shouldn't and I turned out just fine.
