"The book expands Teaching Banned Books to include more titles and more genres (such as graphic novels and nonfiction)"--

"As standard-bearers for intellectual freedom, school and children's librarians are in ideal positions to collaborate with educators to not only protect the freedom to read but also ensure that valued books which touch upon important topics are not quarantined from the readers for whom they were written. Scales shows that there is a way to teach these books while respecting all views. This second edition spotlights titles dealing with sensitive but vital issues such as bullying, racism, bigotry, making tough choices, other cultures, and our uncertain future. It includes titles for older readers, and is updated to include genres such as graphic novels and nonfiction."--Adapté de la préface.
