Banned Books

WATER FOR ELEPHANTS

2012

Removed from a spring break elective course at the Bedford (NH) School District after a parent complained about the novel's sexual content. The complainant further suggested that the school only allow "youth versions" of particular books or organize a parental review systme over the summer that would look at books that students need parental permission to read. A checklist has been proposed that Bedford school officials would use to rate books and other instructional materials.
