Why do books get banned? It seems ridiculous why can 't it be the readers choice Books get banned all the time for all sorts of reasons anything from sexual activity to negativity. What is the point of banning books? Is it the parents not wanting to expose their children to the real world. “Looking for Alaska” is an amazing book yet, it is banned for being real.
In the text it said “gets off the boat, a pack of huskies violently attacks and kills her.” This proves that teens shouldn’t read “The Call of The Wild” because it has killing. If people complain of a book they should ban it. In the text it said “Mother of an 11th grader complained that the novel was too much for teenagers.” If parents are complaining they know that it's not right for teenagers to read it and it need to get banned.

A fourth grader might be able to read The Hunger Games, but would not be able to emotionally comprehend the poverty and violence experienced in the novel. This is because The Hunger Games is meant for a seventh grade reading level or higher. The downside to censorship is that it technically violates the United States First Amendment covering freedom of speech. Books should be able to be read without fear of being judged by other people who do not have the same beliefs. Some of the most common books banned are books that tackle uncomfortable coming of age topics (Are You There God?
It has been frequently challenged by parents that are concerned about its amount of violence and the inference that humans are nothing more than animals when left alone. It should not be banned because the presence of violence is meaningful and is necessary to the overall meaning of the book, which holds significant literary merit and should not be kept away from students who have a thirst for knowledge.

A blinding blizzard whirled around their home which did not help the conditions because they were already getting attacked by wolves. Alma unselfishly made sure the horses were in the barn and safe. Another scenario that was person versus nature in the book, Time of the Wolves, was when the wolves smelt the weakness of Sarah and tried to attack them. Although Alma and her were supposedly safe in the house, they were not. The wolves tried to enter anyway they could have, going through windows and trying to get fresh meat.
The Twilight books are among the books that have received the most calls to be banned from U.S. libraries. Twilight was 5th in the top 10 most challenged tittles of 2010 (Stephenie Meyer joins rans ranks of ‘most challenged’ authors 1 & 10). I disagree about why the book was banned because everyone has the right to express their ideas through writing and shouldn’t be banned because someone is offended about what they found in the book that they didn’t like. People shouldn’t keep others from enjoying the book. I recommend the book to anyone that enjoys reading about vampires and werewolves.
Children and teens should be able to access literature “free of restrictions” (70). Censors of young adult literature “fail to see” the similarities between their “desires to suppress information” about sexuality, violence, and religion and the “successful attempts by dictators to control their countries’ population” (70).

If children are told they are not able to read books they are interested in or curious about they will be deterred from pursuing leisurely reading which limits their intellectual
No piece of literature should ever be ban : Of Mice and Men should not be ban from young adults and libraries. The literature classic promotes good life lessons for students to learn from such as friendship and motivation. Simply banning the book would contradict the right of free press under the first amendment of the constitutions. The book also provides a considerable amount of historical context. Even though the book contains a tremendous amount of racism , sexism , and vulgar language , in today’s media , we are exposed to a similar content.
Children should not learn about such things until they are old enough. Kids can be influenced by the things that they are taught at a young age. “Keeping books with inappropriate content out of libraries protects kids, but does not stop people from reading those books or prevent authors from writing them.” Many people think because they are banned means you can not read them. People can still read these books just not at a young age, this also should not stop authors from writing books such as To Kill a Mockingbird.
"To Kill A Mockingbird, The Catcher and The Rye, Animal Farm, and, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; all wonderful American classic novels, unfortunately at one point in time all of these books have been banned (Banned Books That Shaped America 1) .

“Having the freedom to read and the freedom to choose is one of the best gifts my parents ever gave me,” Judy Blume. The issue is there are both pros and cons upon banning and challenging books. Some people may be all for it and believe their children should not be exposed to realism that comes from books ‘trying to protect them.’ What ever happened to the freedom of speech? Books are constantly challenged or even banned.
Of Mice and Men Some people think the book, Of Mice and Men, should be banned in public schools, I think the book should be because of the language and the racial comments. The reason the book might have been banned was because of the severity of bad language. On page four, “So you forgot that awready, did you? I gotta tell you again, do I?
