Someone tried to get Hop on Pop banned from Toronto Libraries

“Toronto Public Library occasionally gets requests from people who want a particular book, movie or audio recording removed from library shelves. Librarians dutifully review each complaint.

Sometimes the requests are reasonable. In 2012, for instance, a complaint led to the removal of an educational video that a library user thought reinforced racist stereotypes about date rape. The newly released list of removal requests for 2013, meanwhile, is just completely insane.

In March 2013, someone complained about Hop on Pop, a Dr. Suess book intended to teach phonics to young children, because it “encourages children to use violence against their fathers.” (via torontolife.com)
