Ban banning of books BY: Grace

No, I do not think books should be banned from public libraries and public schools or anywhere in general.  I understand why some parents may be concerned about their children reading books that contain nudity and language that they don’t want their children to hear. And for younger kids, parents would want to keep their kids from reading  books containing a lot of violence. On the other hand, regarding the fact the it may not be acceptable to date another man or a girl to date another girl, because of you beliefs, your child has the right to know and you can’t act like doesn’t happen in our society.  For example, I understand why they banned To Kill A Mocking Bird, because of its racism and language and violence but I do not think that its exceptionable for them to do that.  Some of the times they will ban books for ridiculous things for things like, they banned “Where Waldo” because in one of the illustration’s for the mid evil section cause it showed too much.  If a parent does not want their child to be reading that type of book, don’t ban it for everyone because you have a problem with it, ban it from you child. It is like saying,  if I’m allergic to peanuts and I can’t have them no one else can have them either.
