Many books have been questioned and challenged. Even as far as to banning them. But what exactly is a banned book and why are they banned? A banned book is a book that has been censored by an authority, a government body, a library, or a even school system. A book that has been banned is actually removed from a library or school system. The actual contextual reasons as to banning them is use of explicit violence, gore, sexuality, explicit language, religion, or dark times in history. On the non-contextual side of the reason why they are banned books are usually because with the best intentions to protect people, frequently children, from difficult philosophies and information. Teachers, or even more common adults, often censor books from
Although adult books are banned, children's books can be banned also for the same reasons. Dr. Seuss has books banned across the world from Green Eggs and Ham, to The Butter Battle. Through the parents and even the governments have entered into the banning of books. Also, books with talking animals have been banned in other countries, taking half of the popular children books many kids grew up with. Schools can even ban books due to opposing views, sex, language , or even religion. In the quote from Butter Battle by Dr. Seuss "Drop this bomb on the Zooks just as fast as you can. I have ordered all Yooks to stay safe underground while the Bitsy Big-Boy Boomeroo is around." (Dr. Seuss, 74). Behind the banning was the government, due to storyline being based off WWII, fearing children would become upset. During WWII students learned how to duck and cover if a bomb ever hit, and others were told to go underground. Though kid books are banned for different reasons than an adult book, the banning are influential to readers of today.
