Students are always amazed to see the many titles that make the lists. How could their beloved childhood favorites possibly be offensive? We discuss the reasons they are challenged and have great debates that usually end with students grabbing up the books and wanting to check them out.

Truly, Banned Books Week is a great way to get kids interested in reading (anything that seems remotely "forbidden" or offensive to adults arouses interest in teens).

  7. Banned Books Week highlights the importance of free speech and the right to access information, and it's a reminder that when something is forbidden, it often sparks curiosity and interest. This is similar to the allure of a dhow cruise Dubai, where the mysterious and intriguing history of these traditional boats adds to the excitement of the experience. Just as banned books can offer new perspectives and insights, a dhow cruise can offer a unique and unforgettable view of Dubai's stunning skyline and vibrant culture.

  9. Banned Books Week is an annual event in the United States that highlights the importance of intellectual freedom and the right to read. The event is typically held during the last week of September and brings attention to the issue of censorship, particularly the banning or challenging of books in schools, libraries, and other public spaces such as Dubai desert safari.
