  1. This is terrific. You can feel Sam’s enthusiasm for the ULS and the book. Hats off to you for instituting this society into your curriculum, and raising awareness about banned books. Your students are excited and involved. One of the favorite books I read to children is “The Story of Little Babaji” by Helen Bannerman. It was written in 1899 when she lived in India. When you and I were children, that story had been rewritten into a banned book, “Little Black Sambo.” I loved that book as a child and vividly remember the tigers running around the tree and turning into butter. Of course the characters in the original book are from India (tigers are from India) and not southern blacks. I talk about this, and banned books, when I read “The Story of Little Babaji.” The children are captivated. Oh, I wish I could be a guest for an hour in your classroom. Thank you for sharing these student’s stories, Charles.
