With the start of the new school year, and Banned Books Week quickly approaching - typically held the last week of September (this year, it is Sept. 27 - Oct. 3), it is time to remember how important our freedom to read is. I decided to create this infographic to help teachers broach the subject of challenged and banned books and get a quick visual to some of the interesting facts surrounding banned and challenged books. Information was gathered via ALA.org/bbooks.

I always love looking through the Challenged/Banned lists each year to see what has come up. Some of the fun ones from the lists over the years include the Captain Underpants series, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, A Wrinkle in Time, Blubber, A Light in the Attic, Flowers for Algernon, Harry Potter, and Where's Waldo? People fight every day for our FREADOM...let's be sure to celebrate it!
