You probably still remember some of your favorite childhood books, which might include a few by Dr. Seuss. The well-known¬† author wrote and illustrated over 60 children’s books in his lifetime. However, recently his estate made a decision to remove six of them from publication. This started a national conversation on diversity in children’s books and led many librarians and parents to reevaluate what kids are reading.
