Books should not be banned by adults. One reason is, challenged books usually represent real life situations. The challenged And Tango Makes Three actually happens in real life, and kids need real life situations in books so it is easier to handle it than in real life. Another reason is, a lot of the books on the challenged list are because they have religious affiliations, and that happens in real life. A lot of the time, the people who challenge books just don’t like the book and topics. The people who challenge them don’t like them, so the remove them from libraries. It creates a lot of hate towards the books that are banned. Mostly it goes against the first amendment. The first amendment is freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is really important as our rights as Americans. If adult ban books smaller kids will not get real life situations.
