Today is World Elephant Day, so curiosity killed the cat in seeing whether or not the children’s book, Babar, had ever found its way to a banned books list. The answer is yes.

Are we expected to rewrite all of the books of the past to match the standards of the present? Or have we forgotten that what was written in that particular period of time was, in part, a reflection of the reality of that time?
