Six Dr. Seuss books will no longer be published due to portraying certain groups of people in “hurtful and wrong ways” like racist and insensitive imagery, Dr Seuss Enterprises announced.

Dr. Seuss’s family takes issue with these 2021 accusations of racism. His stepdaughter says that simply is not the case.
“There wasn’t a racist bone in that man’s body — he was so acutely aware of the world around him and cared so much,’’ Lark Grey Dimond-Cates said.
If the intent was truly to take these books out of circulation, the opposite effect has occurred.
They are suddenly in high demand, along with other titles from this author who people have enjoyed for generations.
