Your child’s bookshelves are crawling with racism and toxic problematicness. But don’t worry — it’s nothing we can’t fix with a little good old-fashioned book burning. There are hundreds of children’s books that could use a good canceling. But let’s just start with these nine for now: 1. Horton Hears a Who — This Seuss book hasn’t been canceled yet, but it sure needs to be. The book claims a person is a person no matter how small, showing that Seuss hates women’s rights and wants to control their bodies. 2. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom — Prominently features the letter “Q.” 3. Every Berenstain Bears book — These books perpetuate the idea of a nuclear family with traditional values. They also appropriated furry culture. 4. Clifford the Big Red Dog — He’s literally a dog whistle for far-right neo-Nazi extremists and their affinity to the color red. 5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — Teaches kids there should be consequences for bad behavior without even considering the child’s race, ethnicity, or history of being oppressed. 6. The Very Hungry Caterpillar — This is book encourages kids to consume and consume, destroying the environment for their own personal gain.
