The business that preserves and protects the Dr. Seuss legacy announced that six books by the author will no longer be published due to racist and insensitive imagery. They include: And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer. Dr. Seuss Enterprises shared, “These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.” The decision came last year after reviewing feedback from teachers, academics, and specialists along with input from a panel of experts that include educators.
