Let Freedom Read Day - Banned Books Week from Muley Reads

 The first week of October 2023 is Banned Books Week featuring "Let Freedom Read Day" a day that is celebrated by taking action such as reading or buying a banned book.

According to one article, in 2022, 11 people in the whole United States has been behind a majority of book bans, making a decision on who can read what, most often without even having read the book or fact-checked the books.

While producing the series Muley Reads, we weren't aware that some of the titles suggested by kids, parents, pastors, and friends were actually going to become banned books!  Because we're both innocent and irreverent, we're proud of that fact.

Parents should decide for their own families.  Nobody should stop you from reading what you want to read, because then your ability to make your own decisions, as long as no one is getting hurt, is being taken away from you.  

The books we've shared are caring, showing that there are different types of families, and are inspirational and inspiring.  Some of the other books are just for fun.  Luckily, some of the titles are ones the political parties just haven't gotten around to yet.
