The Giving Tree

Artist: Mya Kuerner

Banned/Challenged Book: The Giving Tree

Reason for Banning: The book was banned due to deforestation and sexism.

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: They shouldn’t have banned it is a good book and even I read it a bunch of times and it is not anything, it is just being nice to the little boy and giving the stuff he asks the tree, the tree gives to him.
