Choose one of the Children's books from the table. Read it and think about why it might have been banned or challenged in a school or public library. Then do research and find out why.

Take your results and create a Smore: https://www.smore.com/

Your Smore should include
a picture of the book
your summary of the book and
why/where it was banned
a book trailer or some related video

PUT A LINK TO YOUR SMORE ON THE GALLERY PAGE. PUT YOUR NAME ON IT.
Read, watch the videos and listen to the podcasts on this Smore.

Find a book that has been banned and wrap it in brown paper, then tear it so that the title shows (see the picture on the Smore). Make a sign that says BANNED.
