Banning Books? by Abbey

Often parents ban books or censor books because they didn’t like the content in it for their child. However they should not be allowed to make decisions in libraries or schools. Books can provide real life experiences without real life consequences. If you can read about people doing things that can get them in trouble and the kind of trouble that they can get into they are most likely to not do the same thing. I children read about it then more of them are less likely to get in trouble for those things. Another reason why books shouldn’t be banned is freedom of choice. Just because one person doesn’t like or agree with the content in the book doesn’t mean that others won’t also. The United States is a free country where everyone is allowed to have their own opinions. The last reason why books shouldn’t be banned is that lots of books help us learn about different cultures. In many books it discusses religion and the lifestyle of people of different culture. These books help us learn about the beliefs and ways to go about life that different people have. If we didn’t have these kinds of books then some people would not know how to act around people of a different culture.  These things are what create suspense in the stories. If every book was banned because they had one of these things, then there would be no interesting books.
