Can I challenge Twilight for different reasons? Those being "Silly, bad role models, sparkles?!"

Electric Landlady

The Hunger Games is sexually explicit? Did I miss something?

Leila

Annie: But I love sparkly things! Just not when they come in the form of Edward "Stalker" Cullen.

EL: I clearly missed it as well, so at least we'll be clueless together!

Beth

6/10. Does religious viewpoint refer to the books or to the challenger?

I read "And Tango Makes Three" with my fourth & sixth graders, and then told them that it was a frequently challenged book and asked them why they thought it had been challenged. They were baffled for a while. The 6th grader eventually asked if it was the two males, but he thought I would laugh at him for that answer because it was so stupid.

One fourth grader thought maybe it was the birth scene -- there is a picture of an egg hatching. That's pretty raw stuff for some people, I guess.

I do wonder if the people challenging the book have ever noticed that none of the male/female penguin pairs have the benefit of marriage. The entire animal kingdom IS LIVING IN SIN.

I had the same reaction as Electric Landlady. I'm not even sure what can be STRETCHED...

Beth, I love your entire comment muchly.

I've only read 3, though one (8) it's kind of surprising I even picked up in the first place.

Leila

Beth, that is AWESOME. Love it.

Analea

I'm so confused. Where are the sexually explicit scenes in The Hunger Games?

Leila

No one knows!
