Welcome to the Banned Books Week Giveaway Hop! I'm excited to be participating again this year and to celebrate the right to read.
Many books gets challenged each year. If you want to see the list of the top ten challenged books for each year, visit the ALA website for the list. Some books have made the list repeatedly, like The Hunger Games, Captain Underpants, Twilight, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
While I think that kids and parents should have the right to oppose a book being used in the classroom, I also believe in freedom of speech and the right to read. Stories make us human. They help us understand the world around us and the people in it. For some kids, it's the best way they will learn empathy. I believe in books. I believe in the power of the written word.
In honor of reading, I'm giving away a $10 Amazon gift card so you can buy some banned books!
