Have you ever read Harry Potter? Captain Underpants? Because of Winn Dixie? Charlotte’s Web? June B. Jones? Hop on Pop? How about Harry Potter (which was just banned at a school in TN for depicting “actual curses and spells.”) Then guess what – you have read a book that has been banned or challenged because of its content!
In recognition of Banned Books Week next week, 5th-grade students will discuss what it means to have the Freedom to Read. Students will take “shelfies” with a favorite book to show their gratitude for their freedom to read and for the wonderful library we have at Wescott.
