I love Dr. Seuss books. I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books. I remember going to the neighbourhood library and reading for hours all the different books he wrote.

When I learned that in march 2021, 6 of his books were being pulled and banned I was very keen to learn more about it.

Why were they banned? Was Dr. Seuss racist? All these questions I answer (from my perspective) in this podcast episode

Onwards!
