Top 10 challenged books, 2001-

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, by Carolyn Mackler. 2006 (#4). 2009 (#8). Reasons: anti-family, offensive language, sexually explicit, unsuited to age group.

  • Each year, the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (www.ala.org/offices/oif) compiles a list of the top 10 most frequently challenged books in order to inform the public about censorship in libraries and schools. See http://www.ala.org/advocacy/banned/frequentlychallenged/21stcenturychallenged. The ALA condemns censorship and works to ensure free access to information. Celebrate Banned Books Week (www.ala.org/advocacy/banned/bannedbooksweek) in the fall.
