Six Dr. Seuss books will stop being published because of racist and insensitive imagery. Those books include the following:
“On Beyond Zebra!”
“Scrambled Eggs Super!,”
“The Cat’s Quizzer
“And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street”
“If I Ran the Zoo”
In “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” an Asian person is portrayed wearing a conical hat, holding chopsticks, and eating from a bowl. “If I Ran the Zoo” includes a drawing of two bare-footed African men wearing what appear to be grass skirts with their hair tied above their heads.
“The Cat in the Hat,” one of Seuss’ most popular books, has received criticism, too, but will continue to be published for now.
