King and King remains in collection

King and King was challenged in the public library in Allentown, PA.  King and King is a kids picture book about a prince who rejects a bevy of babes to chose Lee as the one he wants to marry.  The library director’s comments are spot on and to the point:

Kathee Rhode, the library’s director, said censoring books based on subject matter is the duty of parents, not the library. She said the library strives to provide material representing a spectrum of views and ways of life.  ”That’s what a public library does, and you make the choice,” Rhode said. ”We certainly want parents to make that decision for their children — not one parent making that decision for all children.”

It’s a fantastic picture book, beautiful pictures, lots of fun alliteration and some rare words.

Thanks Barbara Jo for the link.
