The Bible Report Abuse
although the book might be on the index of forbiddden books on this website, it is a fact that millions of parents around the world regard this book as most important for their children. They read to their children from this book every day. So why to ban from this list? Is this only a list for atheists?

Where the Sidewalk Ends: the Poems and Drawing of Shel Silverstein by Shel Silverstein Report Abuse
I loved this book when I was a kid. I would sit and read the poems over and over again. Kids can definitely relate to this book. They are often amused too.

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss Report Abuse
Younger children are often intrigued by Green Eggs and Ham. They love the rhyming in the book. Some children actually believe that there are such things because they believe in the story!

Home for a Bunny Report Abuse
Classic Golden Book. My fave as a preschooler. It was a banned book in some places because it depicts a brown bunny becoming friends with a white bunny. This didn't go over well in places where misegenation was a big fear, mainly in the Southern states. (The book came out in the 1950.
