ABILENE, TX – After Dr. Seuss Entrerprises announced it would no longer publish six of the author's books because of perceived racial overtones, the Abilene School District announced it will not pull the books from their catalog.
"We are aware of Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ decision to discontinue publication of these six books. At this time the Abilene ISD has no plans to revise our library holdings," said Lance Fleming, AISD's communications director.
The books in question are:
- “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street”
- “If I Ran the Zoo”
- “McElligot’s Pool”
- “On Beyond Zebra!”
- “Scrambled Eggs Super!”
- “The Cat’s Quizzer”
