"1. Where’s Waldo? by Martin Handford
Why: The book was banned and then reprinted because it originally showcased a topless beachgoer (not like anyone could find her if they tried, though).
2. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
Why: Everyone’s favorite childhood book was banned from a public library in Colorado because it was considered 'sexist.' It was also challenged by several schools because it 'criminalized the foresting agency.'
3. Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
Why: Talking animals are somehow considered an 'insult to god,' resulting in this book’s banning throughout random parts of the United States. Several institutions in Turkey and the UK have also banned the book, claiming that the character of Piglet is offensive to Muslims. Other institutions claim that the book revolves around Nazism.
4. James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
Why: The book was banned from an elementary School in Texas because it included the word 'ass.'
5. Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
Why: The book was banned from several schools for being 'a bad example for children.' It was also challenged for teaching 'children to lie, spy, talk back, and curse.'"
