Artist: Nicole Donner
Banned/Challenged Book: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Reason for Banning: Book was removed from Texas schools because a state board of education member didn’t bother to research his decision when he confused the author with an obscure Marxist theorist of the same name.
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I chose Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? because I read the book before. I liked that the bear was big. I chose to draw a bear and a fish in my picture because they are in the book.
