Is Dr. Seuss Violent?

I’ve never really thought about Dr. Seuss books as being overly violent. Recently a library in Toronto was asked to ban the book, Hop on Pop. You can read why the request was made, but it boils down to the fact that at least one individual thinks the book advocates children and violence towards parents. Banning books can be a touchy subject, but it’s one that I vehemently oppose. I believe that the right to information is greater than the “need” to protect society. I may not agree with what’s in a book, but I believe anyone who wants to read it has the right to do so.
