The Children’s Book Council has gathered a variety of materials for librarians, teachers, and booksellers in support of the right to free speech and against censorship and book bans.

We’ll mail you a free kit with the following:

  • Keep Bans Off Our Books sticker
  • #FREADOM coloring page to copy
  • The Pride Love & Acceptance poster, created by Chan Chau in partnership with SLJ (originally made available in fall 2022)
  • A page about a book teaching kids about banned books, by Pat Scales with the ALA
  • A letter from Raj Halder and Sourcebooks about their upcoming title, This Book is Banned

The Children’s Book Council is working with many groups in the fight against book bans: PEN, PFLAG, NCAC, Banned Books Week, EveryLibrary, the ABA, and ALA. We are proud to stand with these organizations and the many publishers investing in resources and the courts.

We thank all of you who are in this fight in your communities, and the children’s book publishing community is here for you. If you have any questions, please email us at cbc.info@cbcbooks.org.
