Once again the American Library Association is calling attention to books that are taken off of library shelves with Banned Book Week. One of my favorites on the top ten list from last year is the book series referred to as His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. This includes The Golden Compass, The Subtle Kinfe and The Amber Spyglass. I’ve read these books to both my daughters and found them to be thought provoking and highly original.
On the Web site for Banned Books Week you can find information about books banned in certain years, or specific decades. You can also check a list of the most banned classics. Check out the ALA’s site to find which of your favorite books are on the lists.
