Banned Books 2016 – For Every Child a Better World

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Challenged, but retained in the Marshfield (WI) elementary schools despite objections from a school board member and chairwoman of the Central Wisconsin Tea Party who thought the book too graphic – namely, that its illustrations of some children living in poverty and violence are inappropriate for kindergartners. The book, published in 1993 by Golden Press, is “written” by Kermit the Frog (“as told to Louise Gikow and Ellen Weiss”). It was produced in cooperation with the United Nations as a fundraiser for the organization.
