School Bans Dr. Seuss Book
Most of us love Dr. Seuss books and most of us remember reading them all the time in school. It’s always one of those staples that you must have at least one of the books.
This is not the case for one school in Canada. They are not pleased with the ‘Yertle the Turtle’ story because officials think there’s a political message behind it. Now the school has banned the book as a result.
A teacher addressed the story to the school board and thought the book had too much political messaging. It’s about a turtle who’s king of the pond and stands on other turtle’s backs in attempt to reach the moon. So, is this school ridiculous because they are banning this book from the classroom? Or are they reading way too much into the story?
