Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Why Were You Banned?

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Author: Bill Martin Jr.

This book was a completely accidental banning.  In 2010, the Texas state board of education was so opposed to a book written by Bill Martin (no relation to Bill Martin, Jr.) and eager to ban his books that this book got banned as well.  Ironically, the book they wanted to ban was written and published AFTER the death of Bill Martin, Jr.
