    Dr Seuss has been credited by millions of educators,parents and Presidents as a huge influence on teaching kids to read but all of these groups will abandon the books after 6 out of 50 books are banned by a small vocal group of activists.

    Dr Seuss was removed from the list on presidential reading week ..

    Truly pathetic.

    Joe Biden can say something racist on national tv every week but not a word is said by the same groups.

    Because Mr Stanley Accrington decided not to take part?

  • It didn't get canceled.  The company that owns the Dr. Seuss books made the decision to cease publishing several books and have continued publishing others.  It's their intellectual property; they can publish it (or not) as they see fit.

    It didn't.  The publisher decided to quit publishing a few titles which were not selling well, and which they believed to be offensive.  This happens literally every single day in publishing.  Books that don't sell well go out of print.  Books that the publisher finds embarrassing go out of print.  It's business.

    Neither OK Obama or Dr Seuss is an English footbal team. Maybe you're thinking of cricket.
