Celebrating the Freedom to Read
So I’d like to thank Dan Kleinman from safelibraries.org for helping me wrap up Banned Books Week. He left me a link to safelibraries.org which states on their site “Children Are Not Safe in Public Libraries.” And I couldn’t agree more with him.
Why? Because children belong in libraries with their parents, guardians or other adults – how else can they learn about glories of reading without someone to guide them? My reply back to anyone who tells me books should be banned is “Read the banned book with your child.” It’s how children learn what is right and wrong. It is how they learn who they are.
I could have just deleted the link… but then, that would be censorship.
So I ask, rather than banning, burning and seizing books… read them. Read them with your children. Just read.
