|Banned Books Week SIMPLIFIED|
In case you can't read the dialogue, it goes like this:
BOY: I don' get it-- Are we banning books?! Is that a good thing?!
GIRL: No! Banned Books Week is about exercising our FREEDOM to read.
GIRL (continued): It's about CELEBRATING all the wonderful books that some people are trying to keep us from reading, just because they don't like the IDEAS expressed in them.
GIRL (won't shut up about it!): Libraries believe in protecting INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM!
BOOK: I'm just a lil' book with some BIG IDEAS! Don't ban me just 'cause you don't agree with me!
GIRL: Save the books!
BOY: Read an "endangered" book today!
|"Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself"|
The first sign reads, "Some people are trying to keep you from reading these books... These books have been challenged and/or banned from school and public libraries across the nation."
The cabinet is unlocked, and I encourage students to check out any books they find interesting.
