Several recently banned books Dr. Seuss books began selling for hundreds of dollars on Ebay.
Six Seuss books – including “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo” will no longer be published due to ‘racist and insensitive imagery,’ according to the organization which preserves and protects the author’s legacy. “These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Pres in a Tuesday statement coinciding with the late author’s birthday.
“Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families,” the statement continued.
The other books affected are “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!,” and “The Cat’s Quizzer.” What’s more, President Biden removed all mentions of Seuss from Read Across America Day.
Six short years ago, Michelle Obama read a Dr. Seuss book to a group of school children.
