The company in charge of Dr. Seuss’ legacy has announced that six of his books will no longer be published due to racist imagery. The list includes books such as ‘And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street’ and ‘If I Ran the Zoo’. Dr. Seuss Enterprises made the decision after a panel of experts, including educators, reviewed the titles. Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’s catalog represents and supports all communities and families, Dr. Seuss Enterprises. ‘McElligot’s Pool’, ‘On Beyond Zebra!’, ‘Scrambled Eggs Super!’ and ‘The Cat’s Quizzer’ will also no longer be published. The company has said that the books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.
