History should not be sanitized nor erased. If you don't like it, learn from it so you don't repeat those mistakes. Dr Seuss is history, his contributions to children's literature and making reading fun for children is unmistakable. Ironically, many are calling him a racist while one of his books (The Sneetches) deals with racism in a way children can understand. -JLC

Agree in general, JLC; I am hanging onto my old copy of Little Black Sambo, but I would never read it to my grandkids.
...and Curious George has always been Curiously Stupid.

Some history is not suitable for children.

if we simply keep running away from our past, we might turn into ghee.
