Banned Books Week: What can I do?
But I think the biggest things I do to support Banned Books Week? I talk to my children about the issues and the week throughout the year. I encourage them to read books that have been challenged. When they were younger, I did hold them off from books until they were a little older but now that they are a tween and a teen, I let them read whatever they want. I try to know what they are reading and if we need to discuss something about the book, we talk about it.
Read freely. Read banned books. Challenge censorship wherever it rears its ugly head. Don't declare because you don't want or don't want your child reading a particular book that no one should be able to.
Talk about these issues. It's the only way we will ever move past them.
