So, according to School Library Journal, Texas’s Board of Education removed the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? from the K-12 public school curriculum. Pourquoi? Because they thought the (dead) author, Bill Martin, Jr (a WWII vet and proud author of a children’s book about the pledge of allegiance) was the (not-dead) author Bill Martin (a professor of philosophy at DePaul University who wrote a book for big people called Ethical Marxism).
