Six Dr. Seuss books will no longer be published over ‘hurtful and wrong’ imagery

1 min read

On Tuesday, Dr. Seuss Enterprises — the business that preserves and protects the author’s legacy — announced that it will no longer publish six books because of racist and insensitive imagery.

The books, which include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street and If I Ran the Zoo, “portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” the company said. The decision was met with divided reactions, and sparked a discussion on how to deal with books containing racist or other offensive imagery.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises listened and took feedback from our audiences including teachers, academics and specialists in the field as part of our review process. We then worked with a panel of experts, including educators, to review our catalog of titles.
