Harry Potter Banned?
I can hear a collective scream among kids and adults alike in some schools and libraries after many petitions to ban Harry Potter books have been circulated. The general consensus is that Harry Potter books are great fantasy novels that empower even the most reluctant of readers to pick up a book and read. These are some kind of school cleaning services. Where great books are cleaned away and not able to be read by students. Especially those students who have a hard time reading other books, that don’t peak there interest the way Harry Potter books do. On the other side many concerned parents and groups have called for these books to be banned from classrooms and libraries. They claim that these books promote witchcraft and an interest in the occult and should not be read by kids. Its interesting how people take FICTION and turn into some real world problem. According to the American Library Association Harry Potter books are on the top 10 list of challenged books from 1990-2000. Its interesting that the series is also one of the top ten best selling book series in history.
