This book right here! Let me tell you, so much fun as for a retelling. I will say I am a little annoyed with the MC Zuri, but I get it. I love that Bushwick is not only the backdrop but also a character that I didn‘t know I needed. Bushwick has a life, a soul, & independent of the characters around it. Just my thoughts. #poc #woc #ny #pride #prejudice #retelling

Challenged & banned for LGBTQIA content. #bbrc

The library where I used to work had a Drag Queen Story Time. Cherry Lemonade read the book to the kids. A mom & her children showed up late & missed it. I offered to read to her kids instead. She politely declined & said it wasn‘t the same as Cherry Lemonade reading it. People try to shut down these story times, but that mom was disappointed to miss it. That mom is awesome. #dragqueenstorytime

LibrarianRyan I agree. Lately across the US DQST has been interupted by proud boys bringing guns, moms of librety, etc. It's disgusting. Let people read to children. A few years ago, I suggested having the person who started the DQST and organization in New York be a speaker at our library conference. One of our planning committe members left over it. And puller her staff and all her support. It was her believe and “moral obligation“ that those types of 3w
LibrarianRyan things were not wanted or needed in central Illinois. The remaining committee decided to make one room of the conference that year, dedicated to the topic, including libraries in central IL and what worked and waht didn't.

Yertle the Turtle was banned in Canada in 2012 for being too political…this has authoritarian rule as its main focus. Probably a much better story for older readers! #SebastianKitty was watching me read this aloud, so he must have enjoyed it. #CatsOfLitsy

The other two stories in this group serve as good cautionary tales for vanity and boasting. #BBRC #PictureBook #LetterY

MoonWitch94 I did not know it was banned in Canada! This one always stuck with me at a kid, and one of my greatest insults growing up was to call someone “Yurtle the Turtle” ((aka the kid equivalent of an asshole 🤣😂🤣🤷🏻‍♀️)) 3w
Librarybelle @MoonWitch94 Haha! It was 2012, and if I remember correctly, British Columbia! 3w

LiseWorks I have never seen this book before and I'm a big fan of the author 3w
Bookwomble An allegorical dismantling of fascism is exactly the kind of "too political" we should be encouraging children to read! ? 3w
