Iconic Banned Books?!

Hey ya'll,
Before March is over with I have to bring to light some iconic books that have been banned or counted out because of certain individuals believing that these books are a threat to a child's mind and therefore should be banned for all children or be labeled so that parents are discouraged from purchasing them. In my opinion these books are amazing and I was so shocked when I had discovered these iconic books are even on such a list.

I have read each of these books and they all taught me valuable lessons about history and human morale. I feel that instead of challenging these books we should try to incorporate them into education today for students in higher grades.
I love these books and they have been ranked under no order.

If you are a parent or a lover of books then these are reads you do not want to miss out on!

Until Next Time ;)
