Dr. Seuss Enterprises has made a special announcement today, Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birthday. In celebration of supporting hope and inclusion the company has chosen six books that will no longer be published.
Working with a panel of experts to review their catalog of titles, Dr. Seuss Enterprises will cease publication and licensing of And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer. According to the statement, “these books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”
Dr. Seuss Enterprises is committed to curating a catalog that represents all communities and families, and stopping the sales of these books is just one part of their broad plan to ensure that happens.
